"The meeting lasted longer than planned. (The two presidents) discussed, above all, Syria and Ukraine. After that Obama and Putin held a one-on-one meeting behind closed doors," the Kremlin spokesman said, TASS reported.

He added that the meeting went off well. "The work will continue," Peskov said.
