Syrian President Bashar al-Assad says the continuation of war against terrorists and the eradication of terrorist groups in Syria will pave the way for a “political” solution to the crisis in Syria.

Assad made the remarks during a meeting with a Russian parliamentary delegation headed by Sergei Gavrilov, the chairman of the State Duma’s Committee on Property Affairs, in the Syrian capital, Damascus, on Sunday.

“Eradicating terrorist organizations would lead to the political solution that we, in Syria and Russia, seek in a way that satisfies the Syrian people and protects Syria’s sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity,” the Syrian president said.

He said that the ongoing fight against terrorism in Syria would determine the future of the Middle East and that a victory over terrorism will safeguard all regional states.

The Syrian president thanked Russia for its aerial campaign against the Takfiri militants operating inside Syria, adding that the Russian stance necessitates “writing a new history because this war will determine the future of the region and the world.”

Russia kicked off a bombing campaign in Syria on September 30 at the request of the Syrian government, targeting the positions of Daesh and other terrorist groups in the country.

Members of the Russian delegation said during the meeting that Russia support the efforts made by Assad in countering terrorism, which sets the foundation for bringing back peace and stability to Syria; Press TV reported.
