Syria ready to ask Russia to bring troops

Walid Muallem, the Syrian Foreign Minister claimed that the country "will request Russian troops to fight on the side of our forces if such a need arises".

Muallem stated in an interview with Syrian state television yesterday that Syria would not hesitate to appeal to Russia with such a request. He also noted that there are no Russian troops at the moment.

"So far the Syrian army is able and what we need frankly is more of the ammunition and qualitative weapons to face the type of qualitative weapons of these terrorist groups," Walid Muallem added.

The Syrian Minister said, that Russia used to help Syria from the very beginning of the conflict, and was not late. He also admitted that the Russian firm stance influences the Western approach to the Syrian crisis more than ever.
