US-Russia Tensions on Show as Putin and Obama Clash Over Syria
The Russian president, Vladimir Putin, and the US president, Barack Obama, clashed on Monday over their competing visions for Syria, with Obama urging a political transition to replace the Syrian president but Putin warning it would be a mistake to abandon the current government. Addressing the UN general assembly, Putin said it was a huge mistake not to engage the Syrian army in the fight against Islamic State. He said the Syrian military was the only force truly fighting Isis militants in the country. The Russian president, making his first appearance at the general assembly for 10 years, also criticised the west for arming “moderate” rebels in Syria, saying they later come to join Isis. Without naming the United States, he said a “single centre of dominance has emerged after the end of cold war,” and attempts have been made to revise the UN role.
