Maduro..Venezuela supports Russian efforts for fighting terrorism in Syria

Caracas, SANA- Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro expressed his country’s support to the Russian efforts for combating terrorism in Syria by launching airstrikes against terrorist organizations.

“We in Venezuela support Russian Federation’s decision as a way for undermining the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) terrorist
organization”, Maduro said in a radio and TV interview on Wednesday.

The Russian airstrikes came upon the request of President Bashar al-Assad, Maduro said, while the US-led international alliance airstrikes have been carried out without the permission of the legitimate government in Damascus, he added.

The Venezuelan president stressed that the Russian efforts are the accurate way for undermining and uprooting terrorism and the ISIS terrorist organization or the neo-Fascism which has appeared in the Arab world, warning that the spread of this terrorist organization constitutes a humanitarian catastrophe.

In an earlier meeting Wdnesday, with Foreign and Expatriate Minister Walid al-Moallem in New York, Maduro expressed his country’s full solidarity with Syria and its legitimate leadership in facing terrorism.
