Kremlin says Foreign Ministry provided full information on Russian military in Syria

Kremlin believes, the Russian Foreign Ministry provided full information on the Russian military who allegedly were dispatched to Syria and it does not comment on the media reports on an increase in the number of Russian soldiers there, President Putin's press secretary Dmitry Peskov said on Wednesday.

"There's nothing I could add to what the Foreign Ministry had said already," he said. "It presented exhaustive information."

Earlier on the same day, Western media issued reports quoting US military sources who said Russia had sent more military specialists to Syria.

The Foreign Ministry's official spokesperson, Maria Zakharova reacted to the reports with a comment saying Russia did have military specialists in Syria and they helped the Syrians master the defense equipment manufactured at Russian factories.

Moscow did not make any secret of its cooperation with Damascus in the field of defense technologies and it was supplying weaponry and technologies to Syria in strict compliance with armaments slashing agreements and international law.
