Russia sends Syrian refugee proposal to Washington after Helsinki summit - RIA

MOSCOW, July 20 (Reuters) - Russia’s Defence Ministry said on Friday it had sent detailed proposals to Washington on organising the return of refugees to Syria after agreements reached by President Vladimir Putin and his U.S. counterpart Donald Trump, the RIA news agency said.

Trump and Putin met at a summit in Helsinki on Monday, although it is unknown what they discussed at a one-on-one meeting there. The Defence Ministry said that over 1.7 million Syrian refugees would be able to return to Syria, RIA reported. (Reporting by Vladimir Soldatkin; Writing by Tom Balmforth Editing by Andrew Osborn)
