Russia and Britain do not see eye to eye on Syria

•Russia – we don’t know who did it

• United Kingdom – It was Assad!

It is becoming clear that Russia and the rest of the western world are becoming more and more divided over Syria.

The Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, David Cameron, called the President of Russia, Vladimir Putin, to discuss how the international community should respond to the chemical weapons attack in Damascus last Wednesday.

They both reiterated the position agreed by all leaders at the G8 in June: no-one should use chemical weapons and any use would merit a serious response from the international community.
The PM of Great Britian made clear that there was little doubt that this was an attack carried out by the Syrian regime. The Prime Minster also stated there was no evidence to suggest that the opposition had the capability to carry out such a significant attack and the regime had launched a heavy offensive in the area in the days before and after the incident.

The regime had also prevented UN access in the immediate aftermath, suggesting they had something to hide.

President Putin said that the international community did not have evidence of whether a chemical weapons attack had taken place or who was responsible for the attack. Earlier reports from Russia state the US and its allies are sabre ratting and looking for an excuse to invade Syria.

The Prime Minister will be working from Downing Street ahead of a meeting of the National Security Council scheduled for Wednesday.
