Damascus, SANA – President Bashar al-Assad received on Tuesday a letter from Russian President Vladimir Putin conveyed by Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoygu. In the letter, President Putin congratulated President al-Assad on breaking the siege imposed by ISIS terrorists on Deir Ezzor city for more than three years.

Talks during the meeting discussed plans for continuing combat operations and cooperation between the Syrian Arab Army and Russian forces in order to proceed towards liberating the entirety of Deir Ezzor city from terrorism.

The two sides also affirmed the two friendly countries’ determination to continue and bolster counter-terrorism efforts in all Syrian areas until terrorism is defeated completely, because the war against terrorism will decide the fate of not only Syria, but the entire region, and its results will map out the future of its peoples.
