Trump and Putin plan face-to-face meeting at G20 in Germany



Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin have agreed to try to meet up for face-to-face talks in Germany in the summer.

 
The two leaders have spoken by telephone on subjects including how to best tackle terrorism and relations with North Korea.


During the discussion, which has been described by the White House as "very good", the presidents agreed that the conflict in Syria has gone on "far too long".


According to the Kremlin, which called the conversation "business-like" and "constructive," the pair said they should step-up diplomatic efforts on the issue.


The phone call was the first time the two men have spoken since the US bombed a Syrian airbase allegedly used to launch a deadly chemical attack.
 
 
The attack on the rebel-held town of Khan Sheikhoun on 4 April killed more than 80 people, many of them children.


Mr Putin condemned America's military response as a "violation of international law," while Washington said the Kremlin's support for Bashar al Assad had sent relations to a "low point".


They went on to agree they should work together against Islamic militants in the Middle East.
