MOSCOW (Sputnik) — More than 160 data-x-items of advanced and prospective Russian arms were tested during the operation in Syria, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said earlier.
"Russia will continue an asymmetrical response [to terrorism] in Syria, which may include the regrouping of forces and means… and of course the supply of high-precision weapons to the Syrian government," Umakhanov said Wednesday.
Russia provided Syria with a considerable amount of hardware and weaponry, and no deliveries are currently underway, the director of Russia's Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation said earlier.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov earlier reiterated a longstanding pledge last month to carry out arms deliveries to Syria. Moscow has maintained that its supply of defensive weapons to Damascus is in compliance with international law.
