On Tuesday, the American President Donald Trump and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin decided that they will join forces to end the ongoing civil war in Syria to put an end to the sufferings of Syrian people that have been going on since the last six years.

First Chat between Trump and Putin since American Tomahawk missile attack

This was the first time that both the prominent world leaders had a chat via phone since US military fired 59 Tomahawk missiles at an airfield in Syria on April 7th, 2017 which were reportedly unapproved by the Russian government.

Russia is a supporter of the current Syrian regime and the American administration has repeatedly accused Russian government to be equally responsible for all the atrocities taking place in Syria. This notion was reaffirmed by US president Donald Trump at a press conference with the Secretary General of NATO on April 12th, 2017, and admitted that the relationship between US and Russia were at an "all-time low".

Discussion between the two leaders

According to a statement issued by the White House, both leaders have agreed on the point that all the alliances involved in this issue should do whatever is possible and in their capacity to end the brutalities.

It has also been agreed upon that the US administration will send an envoy to the current peace negotiations that are going to take place in Astana, Kazakhstan on this Wednesday and Thursday.

Previously, the US was not involved in these talks and as admitted by Russian President Vladimir Putin in his conversation with Donald Trump it is "impossible" to reach an agreement for this crisis without taking into account what the US administration has to say as it is a major "party" in this issue.

Both leaders also talked about scheduling a one-on-one meeting in Germany this year in July.

Apart from President Trump, several other US administration key position holders including Secretary of State and the current United States Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley have also criticised the Russian involvement in Syria and their support for its current administration led by Bashar al-Assad.

To date, this has been the third time that both the leaders talked to each other on phone since Donald Trump became US President.

Their first call took place of January 28th in which they discussed the crisis in Syria and Ukraine among various issues including while the second one took place on April 3rd this year in which Mr. Trump condemned the explosion in a subway train in St. Petersburg which ended the lives of 11 people.
