Damage inflicted by the brutal five-year conflict in Syria has cost the country over $200 billion (176 billion euros), President Bashar al-Assad said in an interview with Russian state news agency RIA Novosti released Wednesday. 

"The economic damage and the damage to infrastructure exceeds $200 billion," Assad was quoted as saying in comments carried in Russian, adding "economic issues can be settled immediately, when the situation stabilises in Syria, but rehabilitating the infrastructure will take a long time."
