Assad noted the successes achieved thanks to the joint actions of the air forces and government forces. He emphasized that Russia saved Syria as a state. According to him, the Russian operation aviation also allowed the advancement of a political settlement.

The Russian leader stressed that the most important thing now is to move to a political settlement. He noted that Assad is ready to work with anyone who wants peace and stability.

Syrian President said that Damascus expects that Moscow will help ensure non-interference of external players in the country's political processes. At the same time, according to Putin, Russia is counting on the active participation of the UN in the final stage of the process.

He stressed that the creation of de-escalation zones made it possible for almost the first time to start a real dialogue with the opposition.

In addition, the Russian president recalled that on November 22 he would hold a meeting in Sochi with the presidents of Turkey Recep Erdogan and Iran Hassan Rouhani.

During the meeting, Putin also presented Assad to the leadership of the Ministry of Defense and the General Staff. As noted by Senator Franz Klintsevich, the meeting of the leaders was a tremendous breakthrough in the process of military-political stabilization of the situation in Syria, reports RIA News

          in 2009-11, surveys were conducted on the Syrian shelf, where huge hydrocarbon reserves were discovered, these surveys on the Syrian shelf were carried out by American and Scandinavian companies .... It is noteworthy that immediately after these data were officially published, a civil war broke out in Syria, together with attempts to transfer Damascus under the external control of world famous forces ... Here we must not forget that the Syrian hydrocarbons are very close to the European market in comparatively the same Gulf countries ...
          Therefore, the Russian Federation will not remain in the loser laughing

          Not a single oil ...
          Russian military bases in Syria, as an instrument of geopolitics, are also worth something.

          It wouldn’t be so good if it weren’t so bad ...

          The USA, too, “acquired” ELEVEN (!!!) though not legal but bases, in the same place.
          And it seems they want to settle there for a long time. recourse

              Yes, no one is friends with Arabs. So, business, nothing more.
              It was necessary to hold a meeting in the Crimea (Yalta, for example). That would be trolling

        At a meeting, Putin said that for Russia, the operation in Syria is ending: “Of course, a complete victory over terrorism is still a long way off. But as for our joint work to fight terrorists in Syria, this military operation is indeed ending.”
        I wonder why in VO information is presented fragmentarily ?! Because voters will not understand? But this is stupid, because everything can be found in Google.

      That's right - our oligarchs will begin to cut into pieces. The question is - what will fall to the Russian people from this? Another imitation of gasoline? Taxes on transport? For real estate?

        do you multiply in the incubator by budding? and they’re laying the head a standard set of questions and turns about the olegarchs and the people will fall?

        the feeling that the stream is straight. conveyor. Solzhenitsyn about the gulag, Nepolzhivtsy about the Alegharchs who do not share with the people

        print the leaflet, on the other side there are no enemies and alegarchs and use it to pass

    The main thing is to leave military bases on the territory of Syria, and of course to participate in internal political processes, not to let the stripes negate all our successes in this region. Afghanistan is an example of this.

    But in fact, what kind of Assad Syria can we talk about ??? Before our arrival, he had 1.5 streets left in Damascus.
    I’m only afraid we can succeed, as always, we will help everyone, we will win, and then they will send us in the ass

      In fact, we were sent there after we were rebuilt. And the senders can be understood. This means that everything must be done so that the USA and the EU are reconstructed, and in our country, so that there is no more restructuring.

    "The Russian leader emphasized that now the main thing is to move to a political settlement".

    Yes, but for some reason the article does not indicate that he also said that the military phase of Russia's participation is over ...
    However, in connection with the wishes of Assad: "Damascus expects that Moscow will help ensure the non-interference of external players in the political processes of the country", you don’t have to rely on the imminent end of the military phase ...
    Not only will the "opposition" not calm down ... Even Israel is increasing its military spending, justifying their stay with Russia in Syria ...
    So there are still enough people willing to add kerosene to the fire ...
