Obama may discuss Syria next week in Bali-Kremlin
MOSCOW (REUTERS) - Russian President Vladimir Putin and United States President Barack Obama may discuss the Syria crisis on the sidelines of an Asia-Pacific summit next week in Bali, a Kremlin aide said on Thursday.
"It would be rather logical to meet (Obama) in Bali, taking into account the work on the Syrian issue," Mr Putin's top foreign policy adviser, Yuri Ushakov, told reporters.
He said U.S. and Russian officials were discussing arrangements for a possible meeting during the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit. Mr Putin is expected to leave Moscow for the Indonesian island of Bali on Sunday.
Russia, which is Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's main ally, and the United States have long been at odds over the conflict in Syria.
