The communique from the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs stressed that the ‘convincing victory by the incumbent head of State is an important step towards strengthening stability’ in the country.
The priority for all Syrians is to ensure the normal functioning of the state institutions on the basis of legislation, especially in the conditions of the armed struggle against the terrorists, the document stressed.
The Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs recalled that observers from several countries, including a Russian legislators’ delegation, traveled to Syria to monitor the elections.
On May 26, when Syria’s voting had not yet concluded, the UN Security Council’s western powers charged against the elections and the constitutional government of the Arab nation.
During the meeting, only Russia defended the validity and importance of the elections, facing criticism from the United States, the United Kingdom and France, which considered the elections a maneuver by the Syrian leader who will not help to solve the conflict in the country.
