Transcript for President Obama and Vladimir Putin at G20 Summit
Breaking news overseas. President Obama is in China for the g20 summit Reading with Vladimir Putin to discuss Syria and how to fight Isis. The president will be speaking shortly but bob woodruff is in China with the latest. Reporter: Yes, that meeting of the two presidents lasted much longer than anybody expected, about an hour and a half. Still no agreement, but they will continue to talk about this to try to reduce this violence there in Syria. Now, secretary of state John Kerry also tried to get an agreement with his Russian counterpart for the past two days, but that failed as well. The hope is to work out a cease-fire between Syria's leader, bashar Assad. The goal is to figure out a way for the U.S. And Russia to work together to target extremist groups like Isis. North Korea launched three ballistic missiles. Very interesting that it happened while the most powerful leaders are meeting. North Korea does like to impress the world with growing threats and this time the U.S. President is less than 700 miles away from the spot where these missiles were fired. Paula, George? Provocative right there.
