Russian President Vladimir Putin

(Worthy News)-- In a surprise meeting with Syria's foreign minister, Russian President Vladimir Putin pledged his support Monday for Syrian President Bashar Assad and called on all Middle East nations to join forces to fight Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant militants, the Associated Press reported.

The war in Syria, which began with protests in March 2011, has killed more than 220,000 people. Russia, which has traditionally strong ties to Syria, has been seen as a key to a peaceful solution and has previously rebuffed suggestions that Assad’s resignation could help end the war.

Putin told the Syrian envoy that Russia’s "policy to support Syria, the Syrian leadership and the Syrian people remains unchanged."

Speaking after the meeting, al-Moallem said he was assured that "Russia will continue to help Syria politically, economically and militarily." --Source
