Egypt President Praises Russia for Stabilization in Syria
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Thursday that Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Sisi has described in a phone call with President Vladimir Putin Russia's contribution to the stabilization of the situation in Syria as positive.
Sisi called the Kremlin on Wednesday to congratulate Putin on his birthday. "The sides also discussed the Russian military operation in support of the Syrian army," Peskov said, stressing that "Sisi gave a positive assessment of the actions taken by the Russian armed forces in Syria."
Russia’s Sukhoi Su-25, Su-24M and Su-34 attack aircraft, with the support of Su-30 jets, commenced precision airstrikes against ISIL targets in Syria on September 30, following a request from Syrian President Bashar Assad.
