MOSCOW, March 20. /TASS/. The international community should chip in to restore Syria’s facilities, Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu said on Monday following the "2+2" Russian-Japanese talks in Tokyo.
"We believe the time has come to start discussing the postwar reconstruction of Syria’s facilities and the international coalition’s contribution to these efforts," he told the Rossiya 24 TV channel.
According to the Russian defense minister, the issue at hand is restoring water-intake facilities and essential utility services in various cities throughout the country.
"Many facilities have been destroyed, and a lot needs to be restored. This assistance can be provided by way of equipment, experts or even by training specialists. Actually, this is what Russia is doing now," Shoigu stated.
He hoped that Russia’s foreign partners will join "these large-scale humanitarian projects."
