WASHINGTON, August 31 (Itar-Tass) - U.S. President Barack Obama will not declare the start of a military action against Syria in the next few hours, the U.S. administration said on Saturday.
The White House press service said that Obama was planning to make a statement on Syria at the White House Rose Garden at 13:5 local time (21:15 Moscow time).
The U.S. president will just explain how decisions are being made and what actions should be taken in response to the use of chemical weapons in Syria.
Obama met his closest national security advisers earlier on Saturday.
