Putin and Trump Talk Syria, Election Meddling at Brief Meeting

Putin and Trump Talk Syria, Election Meddling at Brief Meeting

DANANG, Vietnam - U.S. President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin agreed a statement on Syria during a brief meeting at a summit in Vietnam on Saturday and Putin again dismissed allegations of meddling in last year's U.S. election.
It was their first encounter since July and came at a time that U.S.-Russia relations have been battered and Trump is haunted by the accusations that Putin influenced the election that brought him to the White House.
Trump said their agreement to support a political solution to Syria's conflict would save "tremendous numbers of lives".
"We did it very quickly," Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One after leaving the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit in the resort of Danang for Hanoi, Vietnam's capital. "We seem to have a very good feeling for each other, a good relationship considering we don't know each other well."
Talking after their meeting, Putin described Trump as "a well-mannered person and comfortable to deal with". (Reuters)
