A second round of talks between the Syrian regime and opposition have ended, with no new date set.
The US-led coalition in Syria tried to "impede" Russian warplanes from bombing "Islamic State" (IS) militia, the Russian Defense Ministry said. It also accused Washington of allowing the jihadists to regroup in Iraq.
In a joint statement on Syria, the US president and his Russian counterpart have agreed to fight "IS" extremists together. At a regional summit, the leaders also denied claims of Moscow interference in the US election.
US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has reaffirmed a commitment to reviving the Geneva peace process. He added that Washington sees no future for President Bashar Assad in Syria's government.
Russia's military campaign objectives "have been almost accomplished," according to an influential lawmaker. With talks gearing up, the UN's chief negotiator said the peace process had reached a "moment of truth."
