Russia's policy of giving support to the Syrian leadership and people remains unchanged, President Vladimir Putin said on Monday at a meeting with Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Mouallem.

"As we can see, the situation in Syria is developing along a complicated pattern, which is linked first and foremost to the aggression by the forces of international terrorism," he said. "We understand that in a situation of this kind, success is always compounded with some problems and military mishaps may occur, too."

"Still we're sure that the Syrian people will win in the final run and our policy of supporting Syria, its leadership and its people remains unchanged," Putin said.
