Russian Lawmakers Seek Dialogue with U.S. Congress over Syria

Russia says U.S. evidence of chemical attack in Syria is unconvincing

Russian President Vladimir Putin has expressed support for a Russian Parliament initiative to send a parliamentary delegation to discuss the crisis in Syria with the U.S. Congress.


"There is no better way than direct dialogue and presenting attitudes publicly," Russian Itar Tass news agency quoted Putin as saying on Monday.


Chairman of the Russian Duma Council, Sergei Naryshkin, and President of the Russian Federation Council, Valentina Matviyenko, asked Putin to use parliamentary ties between Russia and the U.S. to encourage dialogue with Washington on Syria.
