MoscowDeputy Secretary of the Russian Security Council Mikhail Popov said that the joint actions of the Russian Aerospace Forces and the Syrian forces against terrorists have created
favorable conditions for promoting intra-Syrian dialogue.
Russian decision to send aerospace forces to Syria in response to the appeal of the leadership of this country was dictated by a clear understanding of the need to prevent the increase of the terrorist threat, Popov told the Krasnaya Zvezda newspaper in an interview on Monday.
Russian troops' actions coordinated with the Syrian government have caused a significant damage to international terrorist groups in Syria, contributed to the radical change of the situation, created favorable conditions for promoting the intra-Syrian dialogue to serve the interests of the political settlement of the crisis, Popov added.
