Rivers of Hope

MOSCOW (Reuters) – Russia and France agreed on Thursday that Syria must not be allowed to break up but differed on other aspects of the two-year-old conflict, Russian President Vladimir Putin said.

“Despite the existing differences in the Russia and French positions (on Syria), we are for keeping Syria an integral, democratic state,” Putin told a joint news conference after talks with French PresidentFrancois Hollande.
