(CNN) — The United States and Russia still don’t see eye to eye on Syria, Russian President Vladimir Putin said Monday, but “all of us have the intention to stop the violence in Syria … and to solve this situation peacefully.” Putin said he and U.S. President Barack Obama “agreed to push the parties to the negotiating table”
After meeting with Putin, Obama also said the United States and Russia have “differing perspectives on the problem” in Syria, adding that the two countries share an interest in reducing the violence. “We want to try to resolve the issue through political means, if possible,” Obama said.
