washington/moscow - Russia and the United States will again try to improve the situation in war-torn Syria. Following a telephone conversation between the presidents Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin, the White House and the Kremlin expressed statements that enabled them to commit themselves to 'a real peace process'.
According to the White House, it was 'a very good conversation'. The Kremlin said that the presidents agreed on the need to strengthen and stop the ceasefire in Syria.
Both countries crossed the US attack with crossroads on a Syrian Air Force base last month. Trump gave orders after more than eighty civilians were killed by an attack by which the Syrian regime deployed chemical weapons according to the Americans. Russia, the main ally of the Syrian government, was very displeased about it.
Since the attack, Trump and Putin had not spoken to each other. During their call they also spoke of the 'dangerous situation in North Korea'.
