New Delhi :  

US President Donald Trump had a 'very good' conversation with the Russian President Vladimir Putin about a diplomatic resolution to the Syria War and perfect ways to resolve North Korea's dangerous situation in North Korea, the White House said on Tuesday.

Both the world leaders held a telephonic conversation and discussed cooperating together to eradicate terrorism throughout the Middle East apart from resolving the North Korean situation. "President Trump and President Putin agreed that the suffering in Syria has gone on for far too long and that all parties must do all they can to end the violence," a White House statement claimed.

The conversation was a very good one, and included the discussion of safe, or de-escalation, zones to achieve lasting peace for humanitarian and many other reasons, it said.
