BEIRUT - Syrian President Bashar Assad said in an interview broadcast on Thursday that Russia remained committed to military deals signed with Damascus before the outbreak of conflict in the country.

Asked by Lebanon's Al-Manar television about delivery of Russian S-300 air defense missiles, Assad said: "The contracts with Russia are not linked to the crisis and Russia is committed to implementing these contracts."

"Everything we have agreed on with Russia will take place, and part of it has already taken place," he said.
