December 9, 2015

On the United Kingdom’s initiative, Vladimir Putin had a telephone conversation with British Prime Minister David Cameron.

The two leaders exchanged views on current matters concerning security in the Middle East, particularly with regard to efforts to reach a settlement in Syria. Mr Putin and Mr Cameron noted that their two countries share similar views regarding the threat posed by ISIS and other terrorist groups active in the region. In this context, they discussed ways to organise bilateral cooperation through various state agencies.

Mr Cameron expressed his condolences over the destruction of Russia’s fighter plane in Syria. Mr Putin invited British specialists to take part in decoding the data from the downed Su-24 plane’s flight recorders.
