Syria Open To Hosting Russian Bases

DAMASCUS – Syria would allow Russian military bases on its territory, but Moscow has not as yet requested permission, Syrian Information Minister Omran Zoubi told Sputnik on Thursday.



“There were no requests for expanding military bases in Syria from Moscow. However the door on this issue is open between Damascus and Moscow,” Zoubi said.

The Syrian minister said the Arab Republic would issue a request for help in ground operations against the Islamic State (IS) jihadist group if the need arises.
