Putin, Trump Agree to Continue Fighting IS, Accelerate Its Losses, in Syria

MOSCOW – The presidents of Russia, Vladimir Putin, and the United States, Donald Trump, stressed that they will continue to fight the Islamic State terror organization in Syria, the Kremlin said on Saturday.

Putin and Trump made their remarks in a joint statement during the APEC summit in the Vietnamese city of Da Nang.

Both leaders “expressed their satisfaction with successful US-Russia enhanced de-confliction efforts between US and Russian military professionals that have dramatically accelerated ISIS’s losses on the battlefield in recent months,” according to the Kremlin.

Putin and Trump stressed that these efforts will be continued until “the final defeat” of IS is achieved.

At the same time, the presidents agreed that the conflict in Syria has no “military solution,” stressing that the “ultimate political solution to the conflict” must be forged through the Geneva process pursuant to resolution 2254 of the United Nations Security Council.

Both leaders confirmed their support for the sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity of Syria and called on all Syrian parties to participate actively in the political process in Geneva and support efforts aimed at guaranteeing its success.

“The two Presidents discussed the ongoing need to reduce human suffering in Syria and called on all UN member states to increase their contributions to address these humanitarian needs over the coming months,” the statement concluded.
