Putin calls Obama`s military intervention in Syria `nonsense`
Washington: Russian President Vladimir Putin has urged US President Barack Obama to consider whether strikes would help end the violence in Syria, before rushing into a decision on striking the country.
According to Politico, the United States revealed on Friday that the attack in a rebel-held suburb of Damascus, the Syria n capital, killed 1,429 people, including more than 400 children.
The Russian leader implied the chemical attack came from among the rebels, claiming he was convinced it was a provocation carried out by those who wanted to draw in the United States, the report said.
Putin urged Obama to reflect on the results of the U.S. military intervention in Afghanistan and Iraq before taking a decision to carry out air strikes that will bring casualties, including among the civilian population, the report added.
