Sudan’s president is first Arab leader to visit Syria since crisis

Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir arrived in the Syrian capital Damascus, the first such visit by an Arab leader since the start of the Syrian conflict. Footage broadcast on Syrian TV showed President Bashar al Assad welcoming him at the airport. Many Arab countries have shunned Assad since the conflict that began early in 2011 after protests calling for his downfall swept Syria. State news agency SANA said later the two leaders held talks in the presidential palace about developments in the region and in Syria.
Meanwhile, Turkey would consider working with Bashar al-Assad if he won a democratic election, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu told a conference in Qatar. Turkey backed the opposition to Assad in the Syrian civil war. Assad, whose family has been in power for nearly five decades, managed to stay in power thanks to massive Iranian and Russian military support, but large parts of Syria remain outside his reach, including regions in the north, under Turkish control, and in the east, ruled by a U.S.-backed Kurdish-led coalition.
