Vladimir Putin: Russia could back military action on Syria if UN gives green light

“Russian president warned the US that to act without the approval of the UN Security Council would be a display of “aggression”.

Speaking in an interview with the Associated Press, he said: “If there are data that the chemical weapons have been used, and used specifically by the regular army, this evidence should be submitted to the UN Security Council.

“And it ought to be convincing,” he added. “It shouldn’t be based on some rumours and information obtained by special services through some kind of eavesdropping, some conversations and things like that.”
