Summit Showdown

In his first public interaction with Vladimir Putin since requesting a strike on Syria, Obama exchanged a handshake with the Russian leader and engaged in small talk on his arrival to the Konstantinovsky Palace. Despite the pleasantries, Putin and Obama are expected to clash over Syria, with Putin having recently threatened to take action if the U.S. strikes Assad.
