U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said he’s made some progress after more than three and a half hours of talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin aimed at breaking a deadlock over resolving the Syrian civil war to focus on combating Islamic State.
“We did reach some common ground today,” Kerry said at a joint news conference in Moscow with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov late Tuesday. “We want the same outcomes, we see the same dangers, we understand the same challenges.”
