BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:20 A.M.) – Russian President Vladimir Putin answered questions at a Q&A session during the four-way summit in Istanbul on Saturday, stating that the constitutional committee in Syria is expected to be put in place “until the end of the current year.”

He told journalists about the progress which had been made in creating the constitutional committee in Syria.

“We managed to reach agreement with the opposition as well as President Assad to shape two parts [of the constitutional committee]: one represented by the opposition, another – the Syrian government,” he said, adding that the third part, which will be represented by the members of public organisations, remains to be agreed.

Putin went on to say that the Syrian conflict cannot be successfully settled excluding Iran because it is “the guarantor country of the peace-building process and ceasefire involved in creation of demilitarised zones.”

Speaking about the demilitarisation zone in Syria, Putin stated that everything taking place there is in keeping with the initial plans set by Russia and Turkey.

Next time a US Poseidon AWAC controls a drone attack against Russian forces it will be time to shoot the US plane down 🙂

As part of “the opposition”, Likud violent disruption of stability of course will increase to match the threat of peaceful ousting of western cancer from Syria. Or does Putin represent Likud now?

The only cancer in the Mid-East is Islam. No Islam no jihad = no terrorism…

Our base shot down 50 aircraft?? It looks to me like Khmeimim HAS a minimum of 50 aircraft! WWIII anyone? Fake News Anyone? Perhaps that explains why the wild headline has NOTHING to do with the article!

нашей базы нах минимум 50 летательных аппаратах но все что мы делаем с нашими турецкими партнерами….

Our base on a minimum of 50 aircraft but all that we do with our Turkish partners….
