The bad blood between Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin and their duels in speeches at the United Nations on Monday marks  a deeper reality: The two presidents as of now are in greater togetherness than ever due to the treat from the Syria. As a result, some sources suggest that, there’s is a much higher likely how that they want moscow to be a part of the deal—an adjustment  that will make the stay with the Bashar al-Assad’s regime for the time being and place the U.S. and Russia on the same side which are against the Islamic State (ISIL).

How are Russia and US views contradicting?

To Russia, sovereignty is a common thing, which comes to them as agreed in the Treaty of Westphalia that ended after the Thirty Years of war in the year 1648. According to that treaty, the states have full right over their own regions; and no outside party may take part. European countries and the Obama administration in the U.S. have though against it, in the more recent times, but more now based on humanitarian values: If a country is hurting its own  citizens, it’s allowed  to step in. Naturally, the European — and, lately, the U.S. — approach is more engaging. It’s only natural for countries ruled by dictators, such as President Vladimir Putin’s in Russia, to make interest towards absolute sovereignty: doing so is it is helpful for their own safe keeping, though not generally for the interests of the people they rule. Besides, the “post-modern” view of sovereignty is based on overall the world agreement than now on the treaty of Westphalia.

The current heads of both the countries that is the US and Russia agree on the need to tackle the ISIL. This provides for large amount of grounds for mutual understanding. Complicating situations  are: (a) that the top brass of both the countries disagree on what would be an acceptable change to the ISIL is and (b) whether cooperation itself is undesirable because it could also boost Putin’s international and domestic hold less than two years after Russia took over the annexing Crimea. For Russia, therefore, the point here  is whether defeating the ISIL is worth letting go of Assad. For the US, the key point is whether that the Russian coordination would make the rap impact in defeating the ISIL. If not, then why take the chance of throwing Putin a political lifeline and finsih its punishment of Russia over Crimea? Not to mention effectively giving complete control to the Assad regime, which would mean either new demise of the opposition or meaning continuation of the ongoing civil war. It seems that Russia could be a big tole player on  the anti-ISIL coalition only if its top brass is willing let go off Assad, forcing Assad’s regime to make a compromise with the non-ISIL opposition to pose a strong front against the ISIL. But this can only be true only if the non-ISIL opposition can be made obligatory to agree on something which does not deal with the complete ouster of people which the Assad regime portray, and there is no evidence whig depicts as to the fact that the US can deliver that, in such circumstances the baking of the both the countries will be very important as well. In short, what is required or is the need of the hour is a grand diplomatic compromise that is looks very unlikely to occur but the decision makers should look forward to it with a lot of energy and imagination. While to Putin it now seems to think defeating ISIL is not worthy of giving up support on Assad Regime, his public is no mood to support a adventure in hr Syria, giving him at least some bargain so as to consider a solution having some compromise in addition to other truth regarding the Syrian politics. From the American Point of view , including Putin in such a bargain would not enhance his international or domestic status enough to outweigh the potential benefits. Putin would of course spin it in a way that makes him look good, but then again, he spins everything that happens in the world that way.

Why the US And Russia Might just Agree?
The US and Russia share an interest in reducing and ultimately finishing of the ISIS. They also are responsible factors in return of peace in Syria, but they vary on dimension as to how the stability would be a factor. However, Russia’s own interests in Syria and with regards to the ISIS are not the most important goal for Putin at the moment. The central goal for Russian actions—both military and diplomatic–is to make less Russia’s international isolation and achieve achievements and success on the international stage that can be used as a propaganda for internal matters. The almost seamless transition from the conflict in Ukraine to the ongoing conflict in Syria observed by both the Russian Ministry and the Russian Media have been so much important.

In such conditions, the US should  look forward to exploring the possibilities for coordination with Russia on ISIS and Syria—but at an comfortable level. Dialogue should continue between Secretary Lavrov and Secretary Kerry and between the leadership of US and RUSSIA. Meetings between the presidents should only come into affect when there are significant agreements and common points are being negotiated at a lower stage and should be arranged in such a way as to minimize the potential for Russian media to exploit these for propaganda purposes. Any attempt to “change the subject” from Ukraine should be resisted. And the policy of economic sanctions, which has over time been bearing fruit, needs to be sustained.
