Vladimir Putin calls for 'political process' on Syria

Syrian President Bashar Assad has flown to Russian Federation to meet Vladimir Putin at his summer residence.
The Russian president said the terrorists have laid down their arms in key locations in Syria, allowing for the restoration of Syrian infrastructure.
According to the report, Putin congratulated Assad on the "big achievement" recorded by the Syrian army in the war against terrorism. The U.N. has hosted several rounds of peace talks in Geneva that have made no progress toward ending the conflict.
In a statement from the Syrian presidency, Mr Assad said "we have evaluated the political process" and will select candidates for a constitutional committee, a suggestion proposed in January at a summit in Sochi, that will work with the United Nations.
"And of course, the next task is economic recovery and humanitarian assistance to the people who found themselves in a hard situation", the Russian president said.
Moscow launched an air campaign to help Mr Al Assad's forces in 2015 which tipped the conflict in his favour. Putin told Assad that "a lot has been done" at Russia-sponsored talks between the Syrian government and the opposition in Kazakhstan. He also visited Putin in Moscow in October 2015, soon after Russian Federation launched its military operation in Syria. The opposition and its Western backers have demanded he step aside as part of a political transition, something the Syrian government has adamantly rejected.
