We did! Thus, there is a positive example of our cooperation, and we cannot but recognize our significant role in resolving this problem," Putin said.
"Therefore, we can agree, we can work together. The Syrian problem, the problem of the Middle East. It is obvious for everyone that without constructive work, without joint constructive work nothing will work out," Putin added.
