According to him, “today, a period of post-conflict settlement has arrived in Syria with its own difficulties and peculiarities, but Russia has gained much experience as a result of the so-called first and second campaigns in the Caucasus.”
We have much to share with our Syrian colleagues and other guarantors of the peace process in Syria,noted the deputy.
He added that “now a plan for the implementation of a post-conflict settlement will be clarified jointly with our colleagues, and one of the documents will be worked out there - a schedule for withdrawing a certain amount of forces and means, but this will all be determined by the Supreme Commander”.
