“Putin and Obama agreed on coordinating air strikes against ISIS” - according to Vice News.
Citing an anonymous source, the American publication Vice News writes that after a 90 minute meeting US President Barack Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin agreed on coordinating air strikes against ISIS terrorists.
The publication reads: “After US President Barack Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin traded barbs during their speeches at the UN General Assembly on Monday, the leaders of the two countries met for 90 minutes behind closed doors inside the deliberation room of the UN Security Council.
The bilateral meeting, which took pace in the company of ministers and advisers, including Secretary of State John Kerry, was perhaps the most exciting and anticipated political event amidst a year of general disagreement. The discussion was largely devoted to the civil war in Syria, where Russia has recently increased its military presence, sending personnel, planes, and automobiles.”
A senior representative of the Obama administration stated to the publication that the US and Russia reached an agreement over coordinating air strikes against ISS. Meanwhile, Russia clearly stated that it will not participate in ground operations in Syria. “A joint political resolution on Syria should be expected shortly,” the official told the publication on condition of anonymity.
