At a news conference in Ireland at the G-8 summit President Obama Vladimir Putin -- moments ago the president's.
-- Obama said the US and Russia have different perspective on Syria.
But we share an interest.
In stopping the violence let's go back to eighty starter who -- associate editor of the hill and eighty.
He is speaking of starting the violence there are summing congress who have urged the president instituting no fly zone to protect the rebels.
But the Russian Foreign Ministry is now saying in off quote we will not allow that.
AB would a no fly zone.
Perhaps trigger a military confrontation between the United States and Russia.
Oh well I if if that's you know what they continue to say and they're not even beginning to back down over supporting Syria they're gobbling down.
When they make those kinds of statements.
Obviously that is the makings of potential of out of a military confrontation but remember it's really important to note the President Obama does not want.
Two -- implement a no fly -- it's not even support yet.
-- outside of some Republicans in congress for moving ahead with something like that's that's not our current policy.
This new level of stepped up.
Help for the rebels in Syria we are not anticipating a no fly zone right now so the rebels say without it there helpless.
But present Obama has offered one.
The French president has said and I'll quote how can we allow Russia to deliver arms to aside.
Well he not be surprise if they've been doing that for two years but the better question AD is.
How can anyone stop the Russian from delivering arms to -- That's really very greater question I mean you literally -- president I just set about how -- -- -- should reduce the violence.

A year ago tomorrow that I mentioned before in Mexico.
They've made no progress -- going into this meaning he only hope to talk couldn't into agreeing.
To try to push aside to come to a conference there's no motivation for his side.
Since she's -- and his his forces have gained strength over the rebels to attend a conference -- you heard President Obama say we both think a political solution.
Is the best way forward.
That -- that the Russians are not budging on this they are longstanding ally of the Syrian government and -- and they're doubling down as I -- They're Disney they're making no -- -- the reset that President Obama intended to implement it back and his first term with Russia was a good idea it was fairly well intended.
But there's no measurable progress in that area he has no relationship -- this guy.
And no influence over him.
All right AB Stoddard good to see -- thanks very much.
Thanks one other headline President Obama says he hopes -- move forward on dialogue with Iran over its nuclear program after the election there.
That's what he said we'll be right.
