Muslimpress:After many pleas and requests the Russia president finally agreed to meet the U. S president to discuss the Syrian crisis. The Kremlin and White House said the two leaders will have their first formal meeting in two years on the margins of the United Nations General Assembly on Monday, although they gave differing views as to whether the talks will center around Syria or Ukraine. The decision to hold talks checks a US policy of punishing Putin for his invasion of Ukraine, a stance that also brought international sanctions that have crippled the Russian economy. Though, it has not been cheap for Europe and the U.S herself. This is while Russia is a protagonist in crises in Ukraine and Syria, where Moscow props up the regime of Bashar al-Assad. In the recent weeks the support from Russia for Assad’s government has been more obvious. The Russia president even talked Netanyahu, the Israeli Prime Minister, into the anti-ISIS coalition in Syria.
