BEIRUN, February 10. /TASS/. Lebanon’s President Michel Aoun welcomed the Russian Aerospace Force’s activities in Syria at a meeting with members of the State Duma (lower house of Russia’s parliament), delegation member Andrei Gavrilov told reporters after the meeting.
"He welcomed the Russia’s air operations as he considers them to be helpful as far as the war on terror is concerned, since it is important to support ground troops," Gavrilov said.
According to him, the Lebanese president believes that Russia "has been fighting for peace in Syria and protecting the interests of the world community rather than pursuing any improper goals."
The president on Lebanon stated that mass killings committed by jihadists posed a serious threat to Christians, the Russian lawmaker added.
