Russian President Vladimir Putin confirmed plans to create a working party with Israel and other countries to normalise the situation in Syria once the last pockets of terrorist resistance have been cleared. He made the comment in Moscow on Thursday.

“The idea is to create a structure that includes all involved parties,” he said.

“It should deal with the final normalising [of the situation] after crushing the final remnants of terrorism. This is also connected with the complete military withdrawal from the territory of the Syrian Arab Republic as well as with the reconstruction of the Syrian state as well as the preservation of its territorial integrity,” he added.
