October 22, 2019

Vladimir Putin had a telephone conversation with President of the Syrian Arab Republic Bashar al-Assad at the Russian side’s initiative.

The Russian leader informed President al-Assad on the results of his meeting with President of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan and set out the main provisions of the memorandum of understanding which was coordinated after the consultations.

The President of Russia noted that the main goal is to restore Syria’s territorial integrity and continue joint efforts to reach a settlement by political means, including through the work of the Constitutional Committee.

Bashar al-Assad supported these decisions. He thanked Vladimir Putin and voiced his complete support for the results that have been achieved, and stated that Syrian border guards are ready to deploy to the Syrian-Turkish border together with Russian military police units.
