Obama-Putin will have chance to talk on 'margins' of G-20 summit

Washington (CNN) - President Barack Obama and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin will have an opportunity to speak "on the margins" of the G-20 summit in Russia, a White House official said.

The development is a significant departure from what senior administration officials had said previously about Obama's trip to the international forum in St. Petersburg, noting that there would not be an information meeting.

    I believe there was a cnn story stating that Russia seeked to meet with President Obama.
    The President has graciously decided to accommodate their request.
    In light of the situation in Syria I believe that was a wise move on the President's part.

    It's time to be firm with Putin and challenge him to test American resolve. I'd warn him to "make no mistakes."
