ABU DHABI, October 26. /TASS/. Extermination of terrorism in Syria will facilitate success of political processes in the country, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said on Monday at a meeting with visiting Omani Minister Responsible for Foreign Affairs Yusuf bin Alawi bin Abdullah.
The talks focused on ways of settling the intra-Syrian conflict and the situation in the Middle East.
The Syrian leader thanked Oman for efforts to support the Syrian people fighting for their sovereignty and territorial integrity and said that the success of the political process in Syria depended on defeat of terrorism.
The Omani minister reiterated that his country would spare no effort to find a solution that would put an end to the Syrian crisis.
On August 6, Syria’s Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Walid al-Moualem visited Muscat. It was the first meeting between the two countries’ foreign ministers after a more than a five-year break.
