The Russian President said military success in Syria allows a large-scale political process leading to withdraw of foreign forces and reconstruction of country.

The news agency also paraphrased Mr. Putin's message, though slightly differently, saying that, "in the course of the meeting Putin announced to Assad that he was counting on the withdrawal of foreign armed forces from the territory of Syria".

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov advised reporters that "there have been detailed discussions" between the 2 leaders, who final met in December at a Russian navy air base within the Syria's coastal province of Latakia.

Bashar Al-Assad told his Russian counterpart about Syria's progress in fighting terrorism.

Moscow has backed Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in that country's civil war since 2015, ensuring the survival of a Middle Eastern ally and guaranteeing continued access to the strategically vital Mediterranean Sea.

The two leaders have previously met in Russian Federation in November 2017 and October 2015. Its navy help not exclusively ensured the survival of Assad's regime, it modified the course of the warfare.

Russia, Iran and Turkey have been attempting to resolve the conflict in the talks that started previous year - in competition with a US- and UN-backed Geneva initiative.

The situation in Syria is now favorable for the political process, Russia's president said late Thursday.
