US and Russia’s top generals rare meeting in Bern

The leaders of the Russian and US National Defense Staffs met in Switzerland today to discuss mainly the situation in Syria, where the two countries have been militarily involved and maintain regular contact to avoid any random confrontation.

“The two military leaders discussed Syria, strategic stability and a variety of operational and strategic issues to enhance deconfliction and improve understanding to reduce risk,” Milley’s spokesman Air Force Col. DeDe Halfhill said in a statement.
