Syria to top agenda in U.S., Russia G20 meeting
(CBS News) President Obama is set to meet with Russian prime minister and president Vladmir Putin at the G20 Summit in Los Cabos, Mexico.
CBS News chief White House correspondent Norah O'Donnell reports their meeting is scheduled for more than an hour. It will be a chance for Mr. Obama to have bilateral conversations with the Russian leader for the first time face-to-face since Putin regained power in Russia.
The meeting comes amid tensions between the U.S. and Russia over the handling of the situation in Syria. Russia is seen as a key player in Syria. The country has blocked two U.N. Security council resolutions. Just last week, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Russia was continuing to send arms to Syria.
The G20 Summit assembles the leaders of the world's 20 most powerful economies.
