Russia’s President Vladimir Putin has arrived in London for his first trip to Britain in seven years.

He is expected to meet UK Prime Minister David Cameron and they will discuss the conflict in Syria and relations between the two countries at the Downing Street. The two will then travel to the Olympic Games to watch the judo competition.

Putin’s political talks with Cameron will come two weeks after Russia and China vetoed the latest UN draft resolution in an attempt to end the fighting in Syria. Putin’s last visit to Britain was in July 2005 for the G8 summit.
