Syria - Assad Seeking Russia's Help

After military losses of his Iranian allies on Syria's battlefields, Assad is now on a visit to Moscow, thus strenghening his ties with Russia, the only ally left to provide enough fire power for another temporary survival of his regime.

هل طلب الأسد من بوتين تقليص دور إيران بسوريا؟
رئيس النظام السوري لم يشرك معاونيه في مباحثاته في موسكو

What did Assad expect from Putin when Iran's role in Syria was shrinking ?
The president of the Syrian regime does not involve his assistants in his Moscow talks.

في لقائه مع الرئيس السوري أعلن الرئيس الروسي فلاديمير بوتين أن بلاده ستدعم نظام الأسد في "مكافحة الإرهاب" الذي يتصدى له الشعب السوري على مدار السنوات الماضية، وأن موسكو ستواصل جهودها في تسوية الأزمة السورية عبر السبل السياسية. الرئيسان بحثا خلف أبواب موصدة سبل القضاء على "المجموعات المتطرفة"، والعمليات العسكرية الروسية ودعم العمليات الهجومية للجيش السوري، كما ناقشت القمة الروسية السورية أبرز محاور التسوية السياسية في سوريا لإخراج سوريا من أزمتها الراهنة.ـ

In his meeting with the Syrian president, Russia's president Vladimir Putin made clear that his country will support the Assad regime in a "combat of the terrorism" which has been attacking the Syrian people during the last years, and that Moscow will sustain its efforts for a solution of the Syrian crisis by political means. The two presidents discussed behind closed doors ways of eliminating the "extremist groups", Russia's military operations and the support of offensive operations for the Syrian army. The Russian-Syrian summit also discussed the promotion of a dialogue for the political settlement in Syria to make Syria get out of its current crisis.
