During a Pentagon news conference, U.S. President Barack Obama has stated his doubts in regards to the U.S.’s new linking relationship with Russia and it’s aim to end the violence on Syria‘s ongoing civil war.

President Obama and his administration are planning to broaden their military forces and cooperation with Russia through this new allegience. The two Presidents have also decided to take part in intelligence sharing together. However, many U.S. defence officials fear that this trust should not be extended to Russia and have publicly expressed their concerns that Russia will only take advantage of the U.S. intelligence sharing and continue their support with Syrian President Bashar Assad.

President Obama has stated that the only way to determine Russia and President Putin‘s trust and loyalty to reducing the violence and focusing solely on the fight on the Islamic state group and other extremists, is by putting it to the test.
