SECURING THE MEDITERRANEAN – Russia Obtains 50 Year Syrian Port Deal

The seaport of Tartus in Syria will be leased by Russia for 49 years for economic use and transport within a week, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Borisov told reporters after meeting with Syrian President Bashar Assad.

In 2017, Russia and Syria signed an agreement on the deployment of the logistical center of the Russian Navy for 49 years in Tartus.

“We are very advanced in this matter and we hope that within a week the contract will be signed,” said Borisov.

The politician believes that this step will give a serious boost to mutual trade.

“I hope it will be beneficial, in the first place, for the Syrian economy,” said the deputy prime minister.

The agreement can be extended automatically for another 25 years. It is defensive in nature and is not directed against other countries.
