BEIRUT, March 5 (Itar-Tass) – Syria has handed over a German journalist to the Russian embassy in Damascus.
Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal al-Makdad told a news conference on Tuesday that the reporter entered the republic illegally.
He noted that all journalists should get an official visa while entering Syria.
“Journalists can freely work in Syria, if they entered the country in compliance with the common rules,” the diplomat said.
He recalled that several foreign reporters were killed in Syria by the rebel forces.
Al-Makdad welcomed “Russian’s principal position” on the Syrian crisis and highly praised Russian journalists’ coverage of the events in Syria.
At the request of Berlin the Russian embassy took efforts to release the German journalist arrested by the Syrian authorities and to bring him back home.
