Telephone conversation with President of Syria Bashar al-Assad

April 6, 2011

Dmitry Medvedev had a telephone conversation with President of Syria Bashar al-Assad.

The Russian President expressed his support for the Syrian leadership’s plans to carry out the internal reforms announced by Mr Assad in order to prevent the situation in the country from deteriorating, prevent human casualties, and maintain civil peace.

Dmitry Medvedev said that the safety of Russian citizens living in Syria or currently visiting the country is an unquestionable priority.

The two leaders exchanged views on the Middle East peace process. Both presidents said that the priority now is not only to prevent the peace process from stagnating, but intensify efforts to get it moving once more.
