Egypt’s president al-Sisi says presidential pardon of 2 al jazeera journalists “being discussed” -France24 interview
MILAN, Oct 17 (Reuters) – Russian President Vladimir Putin
and Ukrainian leader Petro Poroshenko met an array of EU leaders
on Friday, but there was little sign of progress in patching up
a ceasefire in eastern Ukraine and resolving a dispute over
natural gas supplies.
Putin held more than 2-1/2 hours of talks with German
Chancellor Angela Merkel overnight. The Kremlin said afterwards
the pair were still at odds over how to resolve a crisis that
has revived the spectre of old Cold War rivalries.
