WEB Notes: These people must live in a cave somewhere. The second paragraph says, ‘this is the first indication of the US and Russia being able to work together in Syria‘. Russia and the US have been working for years together straight from the mainstream media’s mouth. We have documented that fact so many times from mainstream media sources how on earth could someone make sure a claim?
President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin stretched their first-ever meeting beyond the two-hour mark and emerged with an agreement for a cease-fire in southwest Syria in the hopes of finding a path to resolve that nation’s punishing civil war.
“A cease-fire has been entered into,” U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told reporters in Hamburg, the site of the Group of 20 summit where Trump and Putin met. This is the “first indication of the U.S. and Russia being able to work together in Syria,” he said.
But it’s much harder to make such a cease-fire in Syria stick, as the U.S. and Russia know from recent experience. President Barack Obama’s administration announced one last year with Putin’s government, but it collapsed almost immediately in the wake of a Syrian attack on a humanitarian aid convoy.
