Syria officially recognized the so-called "LPR" and "DPR"
The Syrian Republic has officially recognized the independence and sovereignty of the so-called "LPR" and "DPR".
This was reported by the Syrian state agency SANA, citing sources in the country's Foreign Ministry.
"Based on the common will and desire to establish relations in all spheres, the Syrian Arab Republic has decided to recognize the independence and sovereignty of the Luhansk People's Republic and the Donetsk People's Republic," the statement said.
It is noted that, according to the source, the country will communicate with both "countries" to agree on ways to "strengthen relations," including the establishment of diplomatic relations in accordance with the established rules.
In February, days before the russian invasion of Ukraine, Syria supported russia's recognition of the so-called "L / DNR," noting that earlier this year, the Arab country had expressed a desire to establish relations with unrecognized republics.
