The U.S. plans to attack Syria soon.
Mr. Putin said though both men don’t agree, “but we listened to each other.”
Both men met in Russia during the ongoing G-20 meeting of world leaders.
Russia has been the staunchest backer of Syrian Government and has urged the U.S. not to attack the country over allegations that the President Bashar Assad government used chemical weapons against civilians. The U.S. says it has evidence that the Assad government is responsible for the use of the chemical weapons that led to the death of over a thousand people.
American lawmakers will vote next week on whether to authorise U.S. strikes on Syria, while the Syrian government has vowed to defend itself with all legal means against any attack.
Nigeria and several other countries have rejected any foreign attack on Syria and have called for caution while condemning the use of chemical weapons.
United Nations inspectors that investigated the alleged use of chemical weapons by both the Assad government and the opposition are due to release their report within the next two weeks.
