MOSCOW (Reuters) – Russian President Vladimir Putin spoke by phone with German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Tuesday and discussed the situation around Syria and the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, the Kremlin said.

Putin told Merkel that U.S.-led air strikes in Syria had violated international law and harmed the peace process, the Kremlin said in a readout of the call posted on its website.
