The second and final day of the G8 summit sees the heads of state and government attempting to stride boldly into the Syrian conflict and questions of terrorism, and find solutions.

Russia’s line, that it is better to have the devil you know in Damascus rather than taking a high-risk roll of the dice by backing the opposition and possibly sowing instability, is being drowned out by the rising civilian casualty figures in Syria.
Putin’s discomfort was plain for all to see, and smiles and handshakes cannot detract from the real possibility the leaders may issue a Syria statement as the G7, with Russia abstaining.
