MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The establishment of permanent Russian military bases in
Syria, including a naval base in the port of Tartus, is necessary to boost
combat capabilities of the Syrian army in the fight against terrorism, the
Syrian Defense Ministry told Sputnik on Monday.

“These bases will enhance combat capabilities of Russia and Syria, as well
as its other allies fighting terrorism, to bring the victory over terrorism
even closer,” Brigadier General Samir Suleiman, head of the Media Affairs of
the Syrian Army’s Political Office, said.

Russian Deputy Defense Minister Nikolay Pankov said at the upper house of
Russian parliament earlier on Monday that Moscow was planning to establish a
permanent naval base in the western Syrian port city of Tartus.

In addition, Russia’s lower house of parliament ratified on October 7 an
agreement with Syria that authorizes the deployment of a Russian air group
at the Hmeimim airbase for an indefinite period of time.
