Speaking on the phone for the third time, Trump and Putin also discussed North Korea and terrorism in the Middle East.
President Donald Trump spoke with Russian President Vladimir Putin on the phone, their third official conversation to date.
It was also the first time the two leaders spoke since Trump ordered a missile strike on a Syrian air base, something Putin harshly criticized.
Based on the readouts released by the Kremlin and the White House, the conversation focused on Syria and how to broker peace after a six-year civil conflict. However, the White House claims the two talked about establishing "safe, or de-escalation zones" in Syria; the Kremlin's report doesn't mention that.
The discussion covered terrorism in the Middle East and how to eliminate that threat.
North Korea also came up — both readouts called the situation "dangerous."
The conversation ended with plans to meet in person at the G20 Summit in Germany this July.
