Putin and Obama speak out in favor of intensifying political settlement process in Syria
In a recent phone call, Russian President Vladimir Putin and U.S. President Barack Obama spoke out in favor of intensifying the process to secure a political solution to the conflict in Syria.
"The sides spoke out in favor of intensifying the process of a political settlement in the Syrian conflict and expressed their support for negotiations under UN auspices between Syria's government and the opposition beginning in Geneva. Based on their results, the Syrians themselves should determine the future structure of their state," the Russian president press service reported.
It became known earlier that Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered the main part of the Russian group to be withdrawn from Syria from March 15 because the task set to the Defense Ministry was accomplished.
