Democracy Now: Obama Talks Syria with Russia, China

The violence in Syria has fueled diplomatic tensions between the United States and Syria allies Russia and China. After new talks at the G20 summit in Mexico, President Obama said the two sides remain far apart on a response to the violence.

President Obama: “We had a very candid conversation. I wouldn’t suggest that at this point the United States and the rest of the international community are aligned with Russia and China in their positions, but I do think they recognize the grave dangers of all-out civil war.”
