"The President of Syria paid a working visit to Moscow on Oct. 20. Talks in narrow and expanded format with the participation of senior leadership of Russia were held in the Kremlin," he said in a statement.

The talks were rather lengthy, and Assad informed Putin about the situation in Syria and plans for the future in detail, Peskov said.

He added that both leaders also discussed the progress of Russia's military operation in Syria, the fight against terrorists and various aspects of bilateral relations.

According to the TASS news agency, Peskov said that the footage of the beginning of the talks would be made public soon and that in that part of the conversation both leaders "made rather large statements."
