Moscow ready to work with both Assad and Washington – Putin

It is easy for Moscow to work with Assad and with Washington, Russian president Vladimir Putin said while speaking about the Syria crisis settlement.

“Speaking about Syrian crisis I can say that it is easy for us to work with president Assad and with the US. I’ve spoken about it earlier with president Obama and with our friends from Saudi Arabia, and from other Arab states,” Putin said in an interview for the Vladimir Solovyov’s documetary “World Order” which will be broadcast on the Rossiya-1 TV channel.

“Why is it easy, you’re asking? Because we’re not playing the hypocrite, we’re not changing our position [on Syria],” the president added.

According to Putin, Russia has always been very certain about how to settle the Syrian crisis.
