Peace in Syria will come as a result not of military actions but of peace talks, Russian President Vladimir Putin said in an annual televised Q&A session officially known as "The Direct Line with Vladimir Putin" on Thursday.
"We hope that reconciliation of armed forces will not lead to appeasement, but political process will. They should reach an agreement, sit down at the negotiations table, adopt a constitution, hold election on the basis of this constitution and thus overcome the crisis," Putin said.
In his words, after withdrawal of Russian group of forces, Syrian government troops’ combat capability is increasing.
