A prominent Syrian analyst underlined that Saudi Arabia and Qatar which still continue their financial and logistical support for the terrorists cannot play a role in Russia's political plan on Syria.

Russia's recent plan to settle the crisis in Syria is the last chance to promote finding a political solution to the crisis in Syria, and Saudi Arabia and Qatar which are still helping the terrorists don’t have any place in this plan, Qassem Hadraj told FNA on Wednesday.

He said that Moscow's preconditions for the opposition forces, including its emphasis on the necessity for their united position and recognition of President Bashar al-Assad's legitimacy, for their presence in the conference to find a solution to the crisis in Syria along with the developments on the ground are all helping the Syrian government.

Hadraj also expressed pleasure that Russia is due to play a serious role in fighting terrorism in Syria and equip the Syrian army with modern weapons.

Recently, Russian President Vladimir Putin confirmed that Moscow is providing aid to the Bashar al-Assad government, including weapons delivery and military training.

Also Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Michael Bogdanov affirmed the presence of the Russian military experts in Syria to train the Syrian army men how to use new military technologies according to joint contracts in the domain of military cooperation.

“Our military contracts with Syria are continuously implemented and different kinds of military equipment are being exported to Damascus… so training these new technologies are in need for services, and the Syrian armed forces are also in need for help and training,” Bogdanov said; FNA reported.
