Russian President Vladimir Putin said the Syrian people are the ones who influence their president Bashar Al Assad in his decisions the most, pointing to the need to preserve the unity of the Syrian nation. 

During a joint press conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in the city of Sochi, Putin stressed that he shares the same opinion as his guest on the need to establish an independent and prompt investigation into the Khan Sheikhoun chemical attack incident, while repeating that Syrian crisis can only be resolved through negotiations in Geneva and Astana and with participation of international bodies and the influential states.

Merkel’s visit comes amid preparation for the upcoming round of Astana talks on settlement of Syrian crisis which will begin on Wednesday.
