Presidents Trump and Putin Meeting to Discuss Peace at G-20
The G-20 Summit meeting between Presidents Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin will give President Trump the opportunity to discuss the election and to begin peace talks.
“We ought to be exploring with President Putin how we can cooperate to end this terrible war in Syria,” a former NATO Supreme Allied Commander James Stavridis said Sunday
The solution to the ongoing war in Syria will not be solved on the battlefield, Admiral Stavridis US Navy (ret) said, but instead will “require a diplomatic resolution, and only the United States and Russia working together can resolve it.”
It is clear that with Russia assisting Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad, he “is not going anywhere,” Adm. Stavridis said, “so rather than end up in a situation where another 500,000 people die, I think it is time to have a political accommodation.”
Presidents Trump and Putin will meet on the sidelines of next week’s G-20 Summit, being held Friday and Saturday in Hamburg, Germany, marking their 1st face-to-face meeting since President Trump was Inaugurated on 20 January.
The meeting was confirmed Thursday by National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster, after Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters the meeting would take place.
According to NSA McMaster, no agenda has been set for the meeting yet, but Adm. Stavridis said the meet will be a “good thing”.
Have a terrific week.
