David Cameron and Vladimir Putin discuss Syria

David Cameron spoke with Vladimir Putin today to talk about international efforts to find a political solution in Syria.

They agreed that the US, Russia and UK clearly share the same aim: to find are solution to the conflict that ends the killing and prevents violent extremism taking hold, with a transitional government with full executive powers, established with the consent of both sides, that preserves the integrity of the Syrian state and its institutions.

The PM made clear his support for the US-Russia initiative to hold a peace conference as soon as possible and said that the UK was willing to do all it could to help.
