WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama will meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday afternoon at the United Nations General Assembly in New York, White House officials said on Thursday.

Obama will seek to understand how the Russian government plans to counter Islamic State by increasing its military presence in Syria, said Celeste Wallander, the White House National Security Council's senior director for Russia.

"There's a lot of talk and now it's time for clarity and for Russia to come clean and come clear on just exactly how it proposes to be a constructive contributor to what is already an ongoing multi-nation coalition," Wallander told reporters ahead the annual session of the United Nations General Assembly, which Obama will join Sunday through Tuesday.
