Russian Federation eyes Syria troop drawdown by year-end

Russian Federation eyes Syria troop drawdown by year-end

It is to be recalled that President Al-Bashir stated in meeting with President Putin that some attempts are attempting to halt the Sudanese gold exploration.

The conversation came about a day after Putin held a meeting with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in the Black Sea resort of Sochi, ahead of a trilateral summit of Russia, Turkey and Iran as part of efforts to build global consensus for a deal to advance the peace process in Syria. I would like to point out that due to the efforts of Russia, Iran and Turkey, the dissolution of Syria, its seizure by the global terrorists and humanitarian disaster have been prevented...

Russia's military support of al-Assad, most notably through airstrikes since October 2015, has been crucial in reducing IS's territory and defeating other Syrian opposition forces.

"We are not against the participation of Kurds [in the Syrian National Dialogue Congress], but we have some sensitivities about some groups: PYD, YPG, which have a link with PKK [Kurdistan Workers' Party]".

Syria has been locked in civil war since March 2011.

Earlier in the day, Erdogan stressed the "need to make significant progress on the political solution".

They also agreed that the Syrians should contribute to the reunification of the country and reach a political solution to this crisis through a comprehensive, free, fair and transparent process.

Gerasimov said the drawdown could start before the end of the year. "It will require compromise and concessions from all parties, including obviously the Syrian government", he added.

The fate of Assad has been a stumbling block in previous rounds of peace talks.

Sudan's President asked his Russian counterpart on Thursday for help to face down the United States, in a meeting held in the Russian Black Sea city of Sochi.

The United States and opposition groups have at times said his removal was a prerequisite to a peace deal, although USA officials, both under former President Barack Obama and current President Donald Trump, have eased off those demands.

Some members of the Syrian opposition have suggested the communique could drop mention of Assad, which would represent an easing of long-standing demands that he not have a role in any transition period.
