MOSCOW, Russia – Russia’s Chief of General Staff and First Deputy Defense Minister Valery Gerasimov said on Monday that the active phase of Russia’s counter-terrorism operation in Syria is nearing its end.

“The active phase of the military operation in Syria is nearing end,” he said.

“Although some issues are yet to be solved, this stage is coming to its logic end,” he continued.

He then went onto highlight Iran’s role.

According to Gerasimov, “Russia and Iran have done much to resolve the Syrian crisis.”

“Thanks to our joint efforts, terrorists are being wiped out from the Al-Bukamal area in eastern Syria and the Syrian-Iraqi border will soon be taken under control,” he said.

“Completely eradicating militant groups, which is only a matter of time, will allow us to move to the post-conflict settlement. But before we do that, we need to secure the previously achieved military gains to prevent terrorists from returning to Syria,” the chief of the Russian General Staff stressed.
