Putin postpones France talks on Syria

Russia’s President Vladimir Putin has postponed a planned visit to France amid a row over Syria, French presidential sources say.

Mr Putin had been due to go to Paris on 19 October for talks and to open a new Orthodox church.

On Monday, French President Francois Hollande suggested Russia could face war crimes charges over its bombardment of Syria’s second city, Aleppo.

Russian President Vladimir Putin will not arrive in Paris on a visit on October 19, a source in the Kremlin told TASS on Tuesday.

“The visit of the president to Paris on October 19 won’t take place,” the source said commenting on media reports.
