Putin: US Stance on Syria ‘Unconstructive’

Russian president hits out at Washington for refusing to host high-level meeting on Syria

Russian President Vladimir Putin has said that US policy on Syria is “unconstructive”, after Washington refused to receive a high-level Russian delegation.

Following talks with his Kazakh counterpart Nursultan Nazarbayev in Astana on Thursday, Putin stressed that Washington’s rejection of holding such a meeting is counterproductive, speculating that the reason for such an act could be because the US has "nothing to talk about".

Last Tuesday, Putin said Russia had suggested to its Western and US partners holding a high-level international meeting in Moscow aimed at reaching a political solution to the crisis in Syria. The US has refused the initiative.
