Russia's deputy foreign minister Vladimir Titov said on Monday Moscow will do all it can to make sure terrorists will not return to the Syrian city of Palmyra, according to Sputnik.
"We consider the liberation of Palmyra to be a very important result of our joint actions. Obviously, we will do everything to prevent terrorists from returning to these areas," he said.
On Sunday, local sources reported that the Syrian Army was still fighting "Daesh" in city suburbs after residents had been evacuated. The governor of the Homs Province said the Syrian Army was trying to regain control of the city.
