DAMASCUS, SYRIA (06:00 PM) – Syrian president Bashar al-Assad has sent an official congratulation to Vladimir Putin for his reelection as President of the Russian Federation on Sunday, as reported by the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA).

In the official cable from Damascus, President al-Assad said that “having this exceptional trust from the Russian people is a natural result of your distinguished patriotic performance and of serving the Russian Federation’s interests with the utmost competence and faithfulness.”

Putin, who has been president of Russia for a total of three terms so far, was elected for another term with an overwhelming majority of over 70% of votes cast on Sunday.

“Under your leadership, the Russian Federation stood against terrorism in words and actions, contributing commendably with the Syrian Arab Army in vanquishing Takfiri terrorist forces in most of Syrian territories, which has rid other parts of the world of this blight that would have spread if not for your memorable procedures which history will not forget (…) Your country’s positions in international forums and circles reflect the pulse of your people and of all peoples that aspire to realizing justice among countries on the basis of equal dignity for all countries whether small or big, contrary to the forces of hegemony and colonialism that attach no importance to the dignity of countries and peoples.”” the message said.
