Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said in an interview published Thursday that he would welcome any Russian proposals to set up new military bases and boost Russian troop numbers in Syria.

Assad, in Moscow for talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin, said Russia’s military presence in Syria did not need to be temporary.

Russia maintains a significant military presence in Syria and has been a close ally of Assad, supporting his government in the country’s yearslong civil war by launching strikes on opposition-held areas.

Moscow’s military support for Assad has helped him turn the tide in the war, which began in 2011 as a pro-democracy movement.

The two countries plan to sign an agreement on economic cooperation in the coming weeks.
