Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates/ While European countries such as France stand against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, but Russian President Vladimir Butier chose to call from Germany to the European Union countries to participate in the reconstruction of Syria, especially as Berlin suffers from the refugee crisis.
"The humanitarian dimension of the Syrian conflict must be strengthened, I mean, above all, the humanitarian assistance of the Syrian people and the assistance of the areas where the refugees who are abroad can return," Putin said before talks with Chancellor Angela Merkel.
There were one million refugees in Jordan, a similar number in Lebanon and three million in Turkey.
Germany has received hundreds of thousands of Syrians since 2015 when the immigration crisis peaked, leading to divisions within the European Union and the weakening of Merkel politically.
Putin warned that the refugee crisis "could be a huge burden on Europe," adding that "that's why everything should be done so that these people can return to their homes," which means practically re-securing basic services such as water and electricity networks and medical infrastructure.
