U.S. House Speaker John Boehner and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi have said they support action in Syria after a White House meeting with Mr. Obama on Tuesday, when the issue comes to a vote as early as next week in congress.

The leader of the Republican party in the House of Representatives,John Boehner, commented the United States has the capability to stop Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and must send a warning to other countries that the use of chemical weapons will not be tolerated.

While Nancy Pelosi, who leads Mr. Obama’s Democratic Party in the House, said Syria’s use of chemical weapons was outside of the “circle of civilized behavior.” She said the United States must respond.

French President Francois Hollande said he will wait to see if Mr. Obama receives support from Congress before deciding on a French role in any military intervention. France had earlier voiced support for military strikes against the Syrian government.
