US Trump, Vladimir Putin Discuss Syria in Phone Call

US President Donald Trump talked for just over an hour by phone with Russian leader Vladimir Putin about war-torn Syria and a host of other international issues Tuesday morning, the White House said.

Both leaders stressed the importance of implementing UN Security Council Resolution 2254, and supporting the UN-led Geneva Process to peacefully resolve the Syrian domestic conflicts, end the humanitarian crisis, allow displaced Syrians to return home, and ensure the stability of a unified Syria free of malign intervention and terrorist safe havens, the White House said in a statement.

Earlier Tuesday, the Kremlin said Putin informed Trump of the outcome of his meeting with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in Russia’s Sochi on Monday, when the Syrian leader reaffirmed his commitment to a political process, constitutional reform and presidential and parliamentary elections.

Putin and Trump also discussed a trilateral summit of Russian, Iranian and Turkish presidents on Syrian political settlement to be held on Wednesday in Sochi, according to the Kremlin.
