Putin, Assad hail achievements in Syria

Bashar al-Assad has travelled to Russia to meet Vladimir Putin

The two presidents have noted necessity of creating additional conditions for a full-format political process in Syria, Peskov said.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad met with Russian President Vladimir Putin, in Sochi on Thursday at the opening of the Sochi Summit, Xinhua news agency reported, citing the Syrian presidential media office.

Putin said that along with giving a boost to a political process, it is important "to take necessary steps towards rebuilding the Syrian economy, as well as settle long-pending hard, but pressing humanitarian issues".

Russian Federation has been one of Assad's most critical allies throughout the ongoing civil war in Syria. He also visited Putin in Moscow in October 2015, soon after Russian Federation launched its military operation in Syria.




"The next task, of course, the economic recovery and humanitarian aid for those people in a hard situation", Mr Putin added. Its military support not only ensured the survival of Mr Assad's regime, it changed the course of the war.

Russia, Iran and Turkey have been attempting to resolve the conflict in the talks that started past year - in competition with a US- and UN-backed Geneva initiative.

A transcript released by the Russian government claimed Mr Assad said the situation in Syria was becoming "more stable".

"Stability is improving, and all this opens the door to the political process that we started some time ago. However with you and different companions and pals, we are going to proceed to make sturdy progress within the peace course of", Assad was quoted as saying within the assertion.
