Syrian President Bashar al-Assad arrived in Moscow, Tuesday, to hold talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin about the situation in Syria.

Putin told the Syrian President that Russia is ready to contribute to a political process in Syria to help bring about peace in the country, stating that "positive results in military operations will lay the base for then working out a long-term settlement based on a political process that involves all political forces, ethnic and religious groups," adding that "ultimately, it is the Syrian people alone who must have the deciding voice here."

Assad stated that Russian intervention in Syria has "made it possible to prevent events in Syria from taking an even more tragic turn," adding that "our common goal is to bring about the vision the Syrian people have of their own country's future."

According to presidential spokesperson Dmitri Peskov, Assad and Putin held lengthy negotiations both alone and in the presence of Russia's top diplomats.
