Putin-Trump: There is no military solution to Syria
US and Russian presidents Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin agree that there is no military solution to Syria, the joint statement announced by the Kremlin said.
“The presidents agree that the solution to the conflict in Syria is not militarily and have confirmed their determination to overthrow the Islamic State,” the Kremlin website said.
Trump and Putin also estimated that additional efforts should be made when it comes to the humanitarian situation in Syria.
Although it was announced that the official meeting of the two presidents would be held on the sidelines of the APEC summit, the White House, before Trump’s arrival in Vietnam, said it would not happen.
Trump and Putin had a brief conversation on the margins of the summit and shook hands before the gala dinner. The announcement of their views on Syria was prepared by experts from both countries
