On July 25, a high-level interagency delegation of the Russian Federation, including Special Presidential Representative for the Syrian Settlement Alexander Lavrentyev, Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Vershinin, as well as representatives of the Defence Ministry, were received by President of the Syrian Arab Republic Bashar al-Assad.

The meeting consisted of a detailed exchange of views on the ongoing developments in the Syrian Arab Republic. The participants reaffirmed their commitment to continuing their uncompromising struggle against terrorism and keeping up efforts to achieve a lasting political settlement in the interests of all Syrians without exception.

They paid special attention to post-conflict recovery, including enabling Syrian refugees and internally displaced people to return back to the places which are their permanent residences as soon as possible. Bashar al-Assad welcomed the initiatives undertaken by Russia to this effect, and affirmed that he was prepared to create the required conditions for welcoming Syrians returning to their homeland in safety and dignity.
