    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The remaining differences between the United States and Russia on Syria are technical, and concern the deal implementation, according to the White House pool report citing an administration official after the meeting between US President Barack Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin on the G20 sidelines in China.

    Responding to the question on the remaining differences in US, Russia views on Syria, the official described them as "technical," the pool report said.

    "There was some backsliding from some of the recent discussions in Geneva, however I think today there was a narrowing back to essentially, at least where we were coming in to here," the White House official stated.
