Bashar al-Assad has travelled to Russia to meet Vladimir Putin

Russian President Vladimir Putin and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, who held talks in Sochi on Thursday, discussed engagement of Russian companies in the rebuilding of the Syrian Arab Republic.

"Russian Federation welcomes this decision by the Syrian president and will be supporting it in every way, given the agreements reached during the Congress of the Syrian people held in Sochi several months ago", Putin said.

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

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters that Assad informed the Russian president of his decision to send a delegation to the United Nations to discuss reforming the country's constitution as part of a UN-sponsored peace process.

A posting on the Syrian presidency's Facebook page said the two leaders consulted on various issues of mutual interest and the latest political and military developments in Syria. Its military support not only ensured the survival of Mr Assad's regime, it changed the course of the war.

Putin noted at the Sochi meeting that Russian warships near Syria will be armed with the advanced Kalibr cruise missile, a supersonic weapon that can easily evade ship-based missile defense systems.

"The next task, of course, is the economic recovery and humanitarian aid for those people in a hard situation", Putin added.

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.

According to a Kremlin statement, Mr Assad said "stability is improving" in Syria, "opening the door to the political process we started some time ago".
