Assad meets Russians to discuss future of Syria – Middle East – Jerusalem Post

Russian Presidential Special Envoy for Syria Alexander Lavrentyev met with Syrian President Bashar Assad on Friday to discuss the latest developments in Syria. The meeting came as Ankara posted the first photos of Russia’s S-400 air defense equipment arriving in Turkey. Turkey has backed opposition to Assad, but Moscow – an ally of the Syrian regime – is now growing closer to Ankara. For Assad therefore, the Russian visit was important to shore up relations with Moscow and discuss the next moves in Idlib, where extremists and the Turkish-backed Free Syrian Army still hold a large area of Syria.
