MOSCOW, June 10. /TASS/. A Russian school in Damascus for Arab children is a good way of boosting cooperation between Syria and Russia, the Supreme Mufti of Syria Ahmad Badreddin Hassoun told Chairman of the Imperial Orthodox Palestine Society (IOPS) Sergey Stepashin.
"It’s necessary to have a Russian school in Damascus from the first grade up to the preparation for the university," the mufti said.
Last year Stepashin came up with the idea of building a Russian school in Syria in line with the society’s traditions prior to the 1917 revolution, which built more than 100 schools for the local population in the Middle East. Currently one new Russian school is working in Bethlehem.
Despite the difficult situation in Syria, an IOPS representative will travel to Damascus at an early date to address the issue.
The Mufti of Syria thanked the chairman of the Imperial Orthodox Palestine Society for arranging dozens of flights with humanitarian aid for residents of Syria sent by the IOPS and other public organizations of Russia.
