Turkey, Russia Agrees For Political Solution In Syria

Russian President Vladimir Putin holds talks with his Turkish counterpart Tayyip Erdogan in Sochi, where both men, who have been at odds over the Syrian war, discussed further steps in resolving the crisis.

After more than four hours of talks Erdogan said the two leaders had agreed to focus on a political solution to the conflict.

Putin said Russia would continue to work on Syria with Turkey and their efforts were yielding results.

Neither leader went into more specific detail.

Putin and his U.S. Counterpart Donald Trump has said in a joint statement earlier that they would continue to fight against militants state in Syria, while agreeing that there was no military solution to the country's wider, six year old conflict.

Turkish President took swipes at both U.S. And Russian interventions in Syria yesterday before flying to meet Putin in Sochi and said if countries truly believed a military solution was impossible, they should withdraw their troops.
