Putin, Assad: Syria Ready for Political Process

Russian Presidents Vladimir Putin and Syrian Bashar al-Assad held talks in Sochi yesterday, the Kremlin's Acting Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov said upon completion of the meeting.

Merkel has already said that the Syrian war has grown into a conflict of "gigantic proportions", and it is impossible to be solved without backing from Russia, Europe and others - but not the US.

"With the start of a political process in its more active phase, foreign armed forces will be withdrawn from the territory of the Syrian Arab Republic", Mr. Putin said. Assad previously visited Russian Federation and met with Putin in November 2017 and October 2015. Its military support not only ensured the survival of Mr Assad's regime, it changed the course of the war.

"The next task, of course, the economic recovery and humanitarian aid for those people in a hard situation", Mr Putin added.

The latest round of Syria peace talks in the Kazakh capital Astana wrapped up on Tuesday, but did not however make any concrete progress towards ending the seven-year conflict that has cost 350,000 lives.

"The two parties have noted the necessity to create additional conditions for the resumption of full-format political process in Syria". They will be sent to the United Nations, it is on the basis of the Geneva process.

"We know it will not be easy because some countries do not want stability to return to Syria. However, together with you and our other partners and friends, we will move firmly forward with the peace process", Assad was quoted as saying.

Media outlets also reported that Putin said Russian Federation expected foreign armed forces to pull out of Syria as a peace process began.

This time, the Russian President (known for excellent German skills) and the German Chancellor (a fluent Russian speaker) are set to meet face-to-face in the resort city of Sochi.
