Putin urges Obama to help separate Syrian “moderate opposition” from terrorist organizations

Moscow, SANA-Russian President Vladimir Putin urged his US counterpart Barack Obama to help in separating the definitions of “Syrian moderate opposition” from al-Nusra and other terrorist organizations as soon as possible.

“Both sides have confirmed their readiness to increase military cooperation between Russia and the US in Syria,” said a statement from the Kremlin released on Wednesday evening following a phone conversation between Putin and Obama, initiated by the Russian leader. “It is also important to resurrect the UN-mediated peace talks to arrive at a political solution of the crisis.”

The last round of intra-Syrian talks in Geneva reached a deadlock on April 27 due to the “Riyadh opposition” delegation’s flippancy and links to foreign agendas.
