Putin warns West over Syria action

Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has warned America and its allies against taking one-sided action in Syria.

He said any military action without UN approval would be "an aggression".

US President Barack Obama has called for punitive strikes in response to an alleged chemical weapons attack.

Mr Putin said Russia did not rule out supporting a UN Security Council resolution authorising force, if it is proved "beyond doubt" that the Syrian government used chemical weapons.
