Assad in ‘good mood’ after Western strikes, Russian delegation says
MOSCOW - Reuters
Russian lawmakers who met with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said the Syrian President was in “good mood” after the United States, France and Britain launched missile strikes on Syria in retaliation for a suspected poison gas attack a week ago.
The supply of Russian air defense systems was not discussed, agencies reported, but Assad accepted an invitation to visit the Siberian region of Khanty-Mansi in Russia. It was not clear when the visit would take place.
