Thursday, 17, may, Sochi hosted a meeting of Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Syrian counterpart Bashar al-Assad, said the press service of the Russian AP.
"With the start of the political process in its most active phase, foreign armed forces will withdraw from Syrian territory", Mr Putin said, without specifying which foreign forces.
The visit of Assad to Sochi is his second, as last November the president met with Putin in Sochi and hailed the Russian support to Syria.
Putin told Assad that in the light of success of the Syrian army foreign forces should be withdrawn from the war-torn country.
"The next task, of course, the economic recovery and humanitarian aid for those people in a hard situation", Mr Putin added. The fallout over the Iran deal is a rare topic for rapprochement between Europe and Moscow, whose relations are marred by disagreements over the Syria conflict, Moscow's 2014 annexation of Crimea and the subsequent war in eastern Ukraine.
