Russia's Putin says Syrian people must engage in political talks

The Syrian people must sit down for political talks and adopt a new constitution for their country, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday.
In his annual televised phone-in, he said that terrorism remains a global threat and Russia knows it first hand.
"Many countries in the world suffer from this danger, from this virus: the Middle East, Asia, the United States and European countries, I won't mention Russia here - we know well what it is, we suffered serious losses during our fight against terrorism and this threat persists," Putin said.
