Russia is considering any possibility of supporting Syria, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said on Tuesday after a meeting with Syrian President Bashar Assad in Damascus.

Rogozin, who co-chairs the Russian-Syrian commission on trade and economic, scientific and technical cooperation, and Assad discussed Russia’s economic assistance to Syria at talks, which lasted for an hour and a half.

“The Syrian side has many requests on how to support life of the state and the citizens who were deprived of traditional means of earning money,” Rogozin said in an interview with TASS and Channel One.

“Syria used to be a country that sold oil, grain and was a successful state. Now it has neither oil nor gain nor many other products to meet the demands of the population,” he said. “Therefore, our commission on trade and economic relations is a tool of support and we consider any possibility in Syria to back them,” Rogozin stressed.
