Trump and Putin vow to take on Syria, North Korea together
President Trump and Russian strongman Vladimir Putin will work together to end the Syrian civil war and stop the suffering in the battle-scarred country, the White House said Tuesday.
The pair spoke by phone in their first known conversation since the US missile strikes on a Syrian air base that sparked new tensions between Washington and Moscow, and the White House said the pair agreed that the suffering in Syria had gone on long enough.
“All parties must do what they can to end the violence,” the pair agreed, according to a White House statement.
The US will send a representative to ongoing peace talks being held in Kazakhstan, the administration said.
