Putin informs Trump about talks with Assad

Assad thanked Putin for Russia's help in fighting terrorism and maintaining Syria's territorial integrity, according to the transcript.

The discussions are just the latest on Syria between Trump and Putin, who have sought to work together to bring about resolution to the years-old conflict a that has ravaged the country - slaughtering hundreds of thousands of Syrians and causing hundreds of thousands more to flee.

"Vladimir Putin informed Donald Trump of the main results of a meeting with Bashar al-Assad that took place on November 20 at which the Syrian leader confirmed his commitment to the political process, (and) conducting constitutional reform and presidential and parliamentary elections", the Kremlin said.

The Russian president also informed his U.S. counterpart of the forthcoming meeting between the leaders of Russia, Iran and Turkey aimed at finding ways to further normalize the situation in Syria while contributing to the political process in the Middle Eastern country. The congress is expected to be held in Russia's Black Sea resort of Sochi, but the date and participants are not clear yet.

It was the second time Assad has traveled to Russian Federation to meet with Putin in the course of the country's six-year civil war.

"Over this period great achievements were recorded both in the battlefield, as well as on the political level". A political settlement in Syria should be based on principles to be worked out during an all-inclusive "internal negotiating process in Syria", the Kremlin added.
