Syria's Assad Travels To Sochi For Talks With Putin

Syria's Assad Travels To Sochi For Talks With Putin

Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad held a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Russian city of Sochi.

The Russian leader said the military successes have created suitable conditions for the resumption of the political process in Syria.

At the meeting, which had not been announced in advance, Putin congratulated the Syrian leader on what he said were significant successes on the battlefield achieved by the Syrian military.

In a statement issued by the Syrian presidency, Assad added on Thursday: "We have evaluated the political process" and will select candidates for a constitutional committee, a suggestion proposed in January at a summit in Sochi that will work with the United Nations. It said that Russian Federation welcomes and supports this decision based on agreements reached in national dialogue meetings in Sochi.

"And of course, the next task is economic recovery and humanitarian assistance to the people who found themselves in a hard situation", the Russian president said. "I have always said, and now I repeat once again, that we always enthusiastically support the political process, which should go hand in hand with the fight against terrorism", Assad said.

Assad previously visited Russian Federation and met Mr Putin in November 2017 and October 2015. "Now, we can make next moves jointly with you".

Russian Federation has been involved in Syria's civil war since September 2015.

Assad said the areas controlled by terrorists have substantially diminished. A brutal government crackdown and the rise of an armed insurgency eventually tipped the country into civil war.

Assad's future has been a key sticking point in years of failed peace efforts.
