Visit by Syria's Assad to Russia lasted four hours - RIA cites Kremlin

MOSCOW, Nov 21 (Reuters) - The visit by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to Russia on Monday lasted four hours, the RIA news agency cited Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov as saying on Tuesday.

Russian President Vladimir Putin hosted Assad for talks at which the two men agreed that the focus in the Syrian conflict was now switching from military operations to the search for a political solution.
