Russian President Vladimir Putin and US counterpart Donald Trump have agreed to defeat ISIS in Syria, the Kremlin says.

The statement was issued after the two Presidents held a meeting during the APEC summit in Danang, Vietnam, Reuters reported, citing the Kremlin.

“The Syrian conflict would not be resolved through military power, and a final resolution must come in the framework of the so-called Geneva Process,” the Kremlin said on their website.

The two presidents also agreed to prevent dangerous incidents involving the forces of partners fighting IS.

The White House so far has not commented on the joint US-Russia operation.

Donald Trump’s relationship with Moscow have dogged the first year of his presidency, with key former aides under a US investigation for alleged collaboration with Russia.
