Syrian President Bashar Assad was set to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday. The two were expected to discuss a Russian arms sale to Syria, according to Syrian Vice President Farouk al-Shara. "We need Russian weapons for defense. Weapons supply is problematic; the international community headed by the US and Israel is overseeing us," al-Shara said.
