Meanwhile, Putin has said that with the notable military achievements in Syria and the activation of the political process, "all foreign forces must withdraw from Syria", according to SANA.

Syria's Bashar Assad traveled to the Black Sea resort town of Sochi in Russian Federation on Thursday for talks with Putin, the Kremlin said. Thursday's meeting was the latest in a series of conferences on military issues Putin chaired this week at his Black Sea retreat. "I have always said, and now I repeat once again, that we always enthusiastically support the political process, which should go hand in hand with the fight against terrorism", Assad said.

Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov says Assad informed Putin of his decision to "send a delegation to the U.N." to discuss reforming the country's constitution.

Russian Federation launched an air campaign on behalf of President Bashar Assad in 2015, helping to turn the tide of the war in his favor. A separate anti-ISIS campaign has been conducted by the Syrian Democratic Forces, a mostly Kurdish militia established by the Pentagon as Washington grew concerned about the increasingly Islamist tendencies of CIA-backed rebels.
