Russian members of the parliament and other officials have shed light on the meeting with President Bashar Assad, which came in the wake of the joint US-UK-French missile strike on Syria.

According to governor Komarov, during a meeting with Russian lawmakers, Assad slammed the Western strike on Syria as "aggression."

As the Russian State Duma lawmaker Sergei Zheleznyak stated, Damascus has praised Soviet arms, which were used to repel the missile attack, carried out by the US and its allies.

"According to the president's [Assad's] point of view, this [the attack] was aggression and we share this position. He has highly appreciated Russian weapons, which showed supremacy over the arms of the aggressors," Zheleznyak said.

Another MP, Sablin, said, citing Assad, that as Syrian air defenses had demonstrated their efficiency, the Arab Republic's citizens were "no longer afraid of NATO."
