The Syrian President's visit to Moscow should put an end to the pause in Moscow-Damascus relations
The Syrian President's visit to Moscow should put an end to the pause in Moscow-Damascus relations, Russian President Vladimir Putin said opening the talks with his Syrian counterpart Bashar al-Assad in the Kremlin. The current Russian-Syrian relations are based on the old traditions of friendship and mutual understanding, Mr. Putin stressed. However, Vladimir Putin pointed out a long pause in top-level contacts between Russia and Syria. Since the early 1990s no Syrian leader visited Moscow. "The demand for such visit is great from the point of view of bilateral relations and exchange of information on the situation in the Middle East. Therefore, we are very happy to see you,' Mr. Putin told his Syrian counterpart. On his part, the Syrian leader noted that he would like to boost Russian-Syrian relations during the visit. According to Bashar al-Assad, over 35,000 Syrians were educated in the Soviet Union and Russia. This is a solid foundation of Russian-Syrian relations, the president noted. The Syrian leader wants to discuss with Vladimir Putin Mideastern settlement and Syria's debt to Russia. He highly assessed Russia's position and role in connection with the recent UN resolution on the situation in the Middle East. "But for your position, the situation would have been different," Bashar al-Assad emphasized.
