Moscow and Washington may reach an agreement on resolving the Syrian crisis shortly, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Monday, following a meeting with US counterpart Barack Obama. The two leaders have finally come to a common understanding, Putin said.
“Our collaborative effort with the US in fighting terrorist organizations, including the ones in Syria, may be significantly improved and intensified,” Putin said at a press conference on the results of the G20 summit in Hangzhou, China.
Without specifying the details of the talks with Washington, the Russian president said he had “grounds to believe” that results may be achieved “within the next few days.”
The Syrian crisis was top of the agenda at the two leaders’ meeting in China, Putin said, adding that he felt real interest and concern from the American president in finding solutions in Syria.
“I think he absolutely sincerely aims to reach results in fighting terrorism and resolving the Syrian conflict,” Putin said. Source
