Bashar al-Assad has travelled to Russian Federation 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.

The Russian leader said the military successes have created suitable conditions for the resumption of the political process in Syria.

Multiple People Killed in Crash Between School Bus, Dump Truck
The news of the deadly bus crash caused a chaotic scene inside the school as frantic parents rushed in to pick up their children. Pupils of the fifth class went to Waterloo Village, a recreated 19th century town, which is a few miles from the crash site.

The government has made it clear that it is also standing by Russia on the latest standoff with western countries over the Salisbury case of chemical poisoning of two Russians in United Kingdom, as well as alleged Russian support to the Assad regime for chemical attacks in Syria. Assad said about it after completion of the talks, TASS reported.

"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. His first trip was reportedly to Moscow in October 2015, a month after Russian Federation staged a military intervention in Syria at his request. A separate anti-ISIS campaign has been conducted by the Syrian Democratic Forces, a mostly Kurdish militia established by the Pentagon as Washington grew concerned about the increasingly Islamist tendencies of CIA-backed rebels.
