Present some comes to town now he then kind of relate stores officials religions and yes of course he will meet them. But he's been pretty governments firstly he doesn't want any kind of cease fire he book negotiate with the people he regards as terrorist. And unless pushed back away from the border that he's going to continue to fight take. Now that doesn't actually mean that there is no potential common ground that Russia is now most. As a key play especially inside Syria essentially some plants in the United States is US troops withdraw all they say it's orderly withdrawal of the people say it's an ignominious defeats and a hasty retreat.

Technically didn't get stressed days as a direct communication going on with the Turkish nativity shows you how to prepare cities there are so many moving parts in this area and come up. Conflicts there's certain moments so many different nationalities you you've got the Syrians that the Russians got the American you've got the Turkish troops to build a Turkish militias because the Kurds.
