Assad reiterates support to Russia in fight with 'old and new Nazis'

The Syrian president arrived in Moscow on Tuesday evening

MOSCOW, March 15. /TASS/. Syrian President Bashar Assad on Wednesday reiterated his support to Russia in the fight with "old and new Nazis."

"I want to take advantage of the moment, as this is my first visit since the [start of the] special operation in Ukraine, and reiterate the Syrian position in support of the special operation against the old and new Nazis. I’m saying they are old and new Nazis because the West accepted old Nazis on its soil, and now it supports them again," the Syrian leader said at a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow.

Assad arrived in Moscow on Tuesday evening. He was met at the airport by Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov, who is also the presidential special envoy for the Middle East and Africa, Syrian Ambassador to Russia Bashar Jaafari and Russian Ambassador to Syria Alexander Yefimov. В последний раз Putin and Assad last met in September 2021 when the Syrian president came to Moscow.
