MOSCOW, May 26. /TASS/. Greece supports Russia’s actions in Syrian settlement because it will help eliminate one of the reasons of illegal migration from the Middle East to Europe, Russian presidential aide Yury Ushakov said on Thursday ahead of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s official visit to Greece on May 27-28.
"Athens positively assess Russia’s policy in Syria and think that political settlement of the Syrian crisis may eliminate one of the reasons of illegal migration to Europe, from which Greece considerably suffers," Ushakov said.
According to the presidential aide, among important issues in the context of the upcoming visit of the Russian president to Greece, are matters of military-technical cooperation between Moscow and Athens, "taking into account the fact that Greece has a constant task of containing Turkey."
