Russian defense minister holds talks with Assad”

Russian Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu met with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in Damascus on Tuesday to discuss the war in Syria, Russian news agencies cited the Russian Defence Ministry as saying.

An unwavering ally of Assad's regime, Russian Federation militarily intervened in the Syria's six-year conflict in September 2015 when the government was in trouble in its fight against rebels and jihadist groups. Russian air strikes in Syria destroyed almost 180 facilities of terrorists' infrastructures near Akerbat on Monday to support advancing Syrian government troops, the Russian military group's chief of staff, Lieutenant-General Aleksandr Lapin, told the media on Tuesday.

The ministry said Shoigu visited Syria on the orders of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The sides also discussed the stabilization of the situation in Syria, the safe zones as well as the humanitarian assistance to the Syrians.

The visit comes just days after Russia's Defense Ministry said the Syrian Army seized control of around 85 percent of the country's territory from insurgent terrorists.

Meanwhile, Syrian government forces continue their operation aimed at completely freeing the eastern Syrian city of Deir ez-Zor from Islamic State.

Last week Syrian troops, backed by Russian airstrikes, broke the siege of two enclaves in and around Deir Ezzor, which had been encircled by jihadists for almost three years.
