On background to a White House official:
President Obama had a brief and informal discussion with President Putin of Russia on the margins of the first APEC Summit meeting. The conversation lasted approximately four minutes. Beyond pleasantries, the President urged President Putin to uphold Russia's commitments under the Minsk agreements, underscoring the U.S. and our partners' commitment to Ukraine's sovereignty. On Syria, the President noted the need for Secretary Kerry and Foreign Minister Lavrov to continue pursuing initiatives, together with the broader international community, to diminish the violence and alleviate the suffering of the Syrian people.
