Putin Puts Russian Warships On 'Permanent Standby' Near Syria

Bashar al-Assad has travelled to Russia to meet Vladimir Putin

Russian President Vladimir Putin and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad have hailed achievements in what they called the fight against terrorists in Syria.

Putin said that along with giving a boost to a political process, it is important "to take necessary steps towards rebuilding the Syrian economy, as well as settle long-pending hard, but pressing humanitarian issues".

Putin congratulated Assad on what he said were considerable achievements by the Syrian armed forces against terrorist units.

Russian Federation has been a key ally of Assad throughout the seven-year Syrian civil war when many other countries, including the United Kingdom, wanted to remove him from power.

"The next task, of course, is the economic recovery and humanitarian aid for those people in a hard situation", Putin added. Its navy help not exclusively ensured the survival of Assad's regime, it modified the course of the warfare.
