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.
Earlier, Oman played an important role in the normalization of relations between Iran and the West.
A day before his visit to Damascus, the Omani foreign minister had a telephone conversation with his Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov. Lavrov and bin Alawi, spoke in favour for the soonest launch of political settlement in Syria on the basis of the Geneva communique of June 30, 2012, the Russian foreign ministry said on Sunday. "The two foreign ministers discussed the development of the situation in and around Syria. The sides stressed the necessity of repelling terrorists and the soonest launch of political settlement on the basis of the Geneva communique of June 30, 2012," the ministry said, adding that the telephone conversation had been initiated by the Omani side.
