The main topic discussed by Vladimir Putin and Tony Abbot was the Malaysian airliner crash. The two leaders spoke out for an accelerated investigation into the causes of the tragedy. They noted that it was inadmissible to deny experts access to the crash site. Both the Russian President and the Australian Prime Minister spoke out for stepping up the investigation, while Mr Putin stressed that Russia has been demanding an unbiased, quick and efficient investigation from the start.
The Presidents of Russia and the United States had a brief discussion of bilateral relations and the situations in Ukraine, Syria and Iran.
