MOSCOW – Syrian President Bashar al-Assad flew into Moscow on Tuesday for a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin during which the two men discussed their joint military campaign against Islamist militants in Syria, a Kremlin spokesman said.
“The president of the Syrian Arab Republic Bashar Assad came on a working visit to Moscow yesterday evening and held talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin,” the spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, told reporters.
Putin last month received parliamentary approval to launch an air campaign in the war-torn country.
