Telephone conversation with President of Syria Bashar al-Assad

February 6, 2023

Vladimir Putin had a telephone conversation with President of the Syrian Arab Republic Bashar al-Assad.

During his telephone conversation with President of the Syrian Arab Republic Bashar al-Assad, Vladimir Putin expressed sincere condolences in connection with the aftermath of the earthquake in northern Syria, in which many people were killed and injured, and offered to provide the Syrian side with the necessary assistance in relieving the consequences of this disaster.

Bashar al-Assad gratefully accepted this offer, and in the next few hours, rescuers from the Russian Emergencies Ministry will fly to Syria.

Russia has also informed, via the appropriate channels, the leadership of Turkiye, which suffered significantly from this large earthquake, of its readiness to immediately provide assistance. Vladimir Putin will speak about this today with President of the Republic of Turkiye Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
