SUKHUM, November 22. /TASS/. No concrete date of Syrian President Bashar Assad's official visit to Russia is currently discussed, Syrian Ambassador to Moscow Riad Haddad told TASS on Thursday during his working visit to Abkhazia.
"As of now, we are not discussing any concrete dates of Syrian President Bashar Assad's visit to Russia," Haddad said. He noted that "frequent visits of the leaders of the two countries strengthen the relations between the two peoples, whether it's Russian President Vladimir Putin's visit to Syria or Syrian President Bashar Assad's visit to Russia."
On Wednesday the Syrian diplomat said that the possibility of the Syrian president's visit to Russia is always being considered.
Assad's last official visit to Russia took place in May when he held talks with Putin in Sochi.
