MOSCOW, September 12. /TASS/. President Vladimir Putin discussed with the permanent members of the Russian Security Council on Monday the situation in Syria and a number of other issues, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.
"The meeting discussed the situation in Syria in the context of the recent Russian-US agreements," Peskov said.
After the hours-long talks in Geneva on Friday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and his US counterpart John Kerry reached a deal consisting of five documents aimed at reinstating ceasefire and laying the basis for resuming the process of political settlement in Syria. These documents include separating opposition from terrorists, carrying out joint airstrikes of Russia and the US, procedures of responding to possible ceasefire violations and the issues of delivering humanitarian assistance sought by millions of people.
At the meeting the sides also discussed the recently conducted Kavkaz-2016 military drills and the summit of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, due late this week.
"Topical issues of the current social and economic agenda were discussed," Peskov added.
