U.S., Russia Differ on Syria Approach

Russian President Vladimir Putin has told President Barack Obama that their positions on Syria do not coincide but both leaders agree on the need to push for negotiations in Syria’s two-year-old civil war.

Obama concedes that they have a “different perspective” on Syria but they have a shared interest in stopping the violence and securing chemical weapons in the country.

Obama met with Putin at the G-8 summit in Northern Ireland to discuss the fierce fighting in Syria.

While Putin has called for negotiated peace talks, he has not called for Syrian President Bashar Assad to leave power, and he remains one of Assad’s strongest political and military allies.
