The meeting’s specific date was not disclosed in the notification.

Moscow has been a key ally of the Assad regime throughout the Syrian war, which began in 2011 with the suppression of anti-government protests.

Russia’s military intervention in Syria in 2015 contributed in shifting the tide of the battle in Assad’s favour, and Moscow maintains military installations in the country.

Russia’s political and military aid to Syria has become a stumbling point in Moscow’s relations with the West, which has sanctioned Russia for helping the Assad regime.

In recent months, tensions between Moscow and the West have increased, with the West accusing Moscow of hoarding forces on its Ukrainian border in preparation for an invasion.
