They also note that after examining bilateral relations, the leaders analyzed the steps toward the political solution to the armed conflict in Syria, which began in March 2011 and highlighted the positive role played by Russia in that regard.
They also reflected that President Putin remarked that the famous victories in the Syrian army and the progress made during the recent Syrian National Dialogue Conference, held in Sochi, allow progress in the reconstruction of this Arab country.
The press indicated, in that sense, that the main thing is the reconstruction of the economy and the delivery of humanitarian aid to those in need. Putin emphasized that with the triumphs of the Syrian Army in the fight against terrorism, and the activation of the political process, all foreign forces deployed in the territory of the Arab nation must withdraw immediately.
US military forces and other Western countries grouped in the so-called International Coalition were deployed illegally on Syrian soil since 2014, without the permission of the Damascus authorities or the United Nations Security Council, according to reports from the Syrian government.
In turn, President Al-Assad stressed that in recent times hundreds of Syrian civilians returned to their places of origin, while other millions are preparing to return to their homes.
In his opinion, this demonstrates the existence of stability in Syria, the basis for the development of the political process already started several years ago.
The media reported that after the meeting, the Russian president announced that his counterpart from the Levant state decided to send representatives to the United Nations to form a Constitutional Committee at the UN to work on the creation of the Fundamental Law of Syria, a decision endorsed by Moscow.
