MOSCOW, September 1 (Itar-Tass) - The US President Barack Obama has decided to receive an approval of the strike on Syria from the Congress in order to give the war at least some legitimacy, Chairman of the State Duma’s International Affairs Committee Alexei Pushkov wrote in Twitter on Sunday.
“The war is postponed. Obama has made a decision on the attack, but awaits approval from Congress,” Pushkov wrote. “He requires it for assuring at least some legitimacy to the war.”
“The main reason why Obama has addressed the Congress: the war has not been supported enough either in the world or among the US allies, or even inside the US,” he added.
On Saturday, Obama said he was positive about a military strike, but required an approval from the Congress.
