Since reelected in March, Putin and Obama met for the first time on Monday at the Los Cabos, Mexico G20 meeting.
Discussions focused on major geopolitical and economic issues. Differences on Syria remain unresolved.
At a joint press conference, Putin said:
"We held talks about international problems including the Syrian crisis."
"(W)e will continue our contacts on all issues."
