Russian President Vladimir Putin welcomed his Syrian counterpart Bashar al-Assad in the Kremlin, RIA Novosti reports. Assad arrived in Moscow on an unannounced visit the day before,  September 13.

Putin congratulated the guest on his birthday and the results of the presidential elections in Syria. The election results are clear evidence that the Syrian people trust Bashar al-Assad. 

Vladimir Putin praised Bashar al-Assad's work aimed at establishing a dialogue with opponents. The Russian president has no doubts that only the unification of all forces will enable Syria to get back on its feet. The consolidation of the country, he is sure, is hindered by the illegal presence of foreign armed forces in Syria.

Vladimir Putin drew attention to the fact that terrorists continue to operate in Syria and attack civilians. Still, many refugees are striving to return to their once abandoned homes. They do a lot to establish a peaceful life.

Bashar al-Assad said that the Russian and Syrian armies had been successful in their fight against terrorists, which allowed the refugees to return home. Through joint efforts, most of Syria was cleared of militants of terrorist associations. Terrorists have suffered great losses, and the government of the country controls almost 90% of the territory.
