India backs Russia on Syria

Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh echoed the Russian position on Syria
by saying that the global community should operate under the framework of the United Nations, sources told RIR.
At the official dinner on Thursday, the Indian prime minister was among a group of world leaders that agreed with Russia’s views that any action on Syria should be undertaken only after the UN investigations on the alleged use of chemical weapons were completed.
India’s position further isolated US President Barack Obama, who has called for punitive air strikes against Syria for allegedly using chemical weapons.  The US president is allegedly relying on American intelligence intercepts as evidence of the Syrian regime’s use of chemical weapons.
