    Russian President Vladimir Putin has recently discussed the situation in Syria in detail with Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi Mohammed Nahyan and King of Jordan Abdullah II, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told journalists Monday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Putin met with Nahyan and Abdullah II last week.

    “During the meetings you mentioned, a detailed exchange of views has, indeed, taken place,” Peskov said.

    Syria has been mired in a civil war since 2011. The country’s government is fighting a number of rebel groups as well as extremist Islamist militant organizations, including the Nusra Front and the Islamic State.

    Moscow has hosted two rounds of talks between the Syrian opposition and government authorities and has expressed its willingness to host a third round of intra-Syrian talks.
