Current Events: An Impromptu Meeting
Two days after the terrorist attacks in Paris, world leaders met in Turkey for the Group of 20 Summit. During the proceedings, President Obama and Russian President Putin had an informal meeting
The meeting was closed to the press, but Pete Souza, the White House's official photographer, posted a photo of the world leaders, flanked by National Security Adviser Susan Rice and a Russian aide, leaning into the discussion.
American and Russian officials say President Barack Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin traded views on Syria's civil war and broached the tense topic of Ukraine during the impromptu sit-down Sunday. The U.S. also says Obama and Putin agreed that Syria needs a political transition led by Syrians, preceded by negotiations mediated by the United Nations and a cease-fire. Obama and Putin have long been at odds about whether Assad can maintain a role following that transition. The meeting may signal new developments between U.S. and Russian relationships and may lead to greater degree of cooperation between the two nations.
