Cameron: UK and Russia can 'overcome differences'

Russia and Britain can overcome their differences on the conflict in Syria despite some disagreements, Prime Minister David Cameron said during a joint press conference with President Putin:

What I take from our conversation today is that we can overcome these differences if we recognise that we share some fundamental aims: to end the conflict, to stop Syria breaking apart, to let the Syrian people decide who governs them and to take the fight to the extremists and defeat them.
