Russian President Vladimir Putin has warned the US and its allies to not strike Syria in relation to its alleged use of chemical weapons that killed more than one thousand individuals including children. He added that the use of force without the UN approval would be considered “an aggression.” However, Mr Putin did not rule out the possibility of giving support to the UN Security Council if there are evidence that can prove beyond doubt that the Syrian government had indeed used chemical weapons.
The US Senate Committee on Foreign Relations agreed on a draft resolution to strike Syria. The measure will be voted on next week and it has 60 day-limit on any operation.
Mr Putin said: "If there is evidence that chemical weapons were used, and by the regular army... then this evidence must be presented to the UN Security Council. And it must be convincing.”
Meanwhile, Secretary of State John Kerry, who appeared before the Senate foreign relations committee on Tuesday, said that there are enough evidence to prove that forces of President Bashar al-Assad regime had prepared for a chemical weapon attack before August 21.
