Tehran (ISNA) - In an interview with Il Giornale newspaper, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu commented on Iran’s key role in Syria’s stability.

During his remarks in the interview released on Wednesday, Shoigu said, Iran and Turkey are playing key roles in stabilizing the situation in Syria.

"Iran, along with Turkey, has historically been one of the main actors in the region and plays a key role in stabilization of the situation in the Syrian Arab Republic," Shoigu stated.

The United States has not allocated any funds to support civilians in Syria affected by the war, the Russian minister said.

"Affirming its 'noble' objectives and 'good' will, the United States has not allocated a cent to provide real assistance to Syrian civilians devastated by long years of war," he added.

According to the minister, dozens of civilians are still being killed in liberated Raqqa after massive bombings by the US-led international coalition.
