Russia's Putin thanks Iran, Turkey for counter-terrorism efforts in Syria

Multiple rounds of United Nations -brokered talks have failed to stop the war that has left at least 400,000 people dead and 13 million Syrians in need of humanitarian aid.

"Russia" Russian President Vladimir Putin has said that his Iranian and Turkish counterparts have agreed to hold a "congress" in Russia" Russia in a bid to end the six-year civil war in Syria. "I should note that thanks to the efforts of Russia, Iran and Turkey, it was possible to prevent the disintegration of Syria and conquest by worldwide terrorists, as well as to avoid a humanitarian catastrophe", Putin said at the summit, Xinhua news agency reported.

Putin said: "As the country-guarantors, Russia, Iran and Turkey continue working closely on strengthening the ceasefire regime, stable functioning of de-escalation zones, raising trust between the conflict sides".

"We will accept and talk with anyone who is really interested in a political settlement", Al-Assad assured Putin.

He said the success of the forthcoming reforms largely depends on the solution of the social and economic problems of Syria, as well as the restoration of industry, agriculture, infrastructure, health and education systems.

In a joint statement they urged the Syrian government and opposition to "participate constructively". "I note that the efforts of Russia, Iran and Turkey have helped to prevent Syria's breakup, not allow its takeover by global terrorists and avoid a humanitarian crisis".

The congress would "gather representatives of different political parties, internal and external opposition" to discuss "the parameters of the future state", he said.

Trump and Putin said the displaced Syrians should be allowed to return and "the stability of a unified Syria free of malign intervention and terrorist safe havens" should be ensured.

The Syrian armed conflict broke out in 2011 and Russian Federation started to participate in the anti-terrorist operations in Syria in September 2015.
