NEW YORK, September 15 (Itar-Tass) - U.S. President Barack Obama has welcomed the involvement of Russian President Vladimir Putin in the Syrian settlement as helpful.
"I think there's a way for Mr. Putin, despite me and him having a whole lot of differences, to play an important role in that," Obama said on Sunday in an interview with the ABC television channel. "And so I welcome him being involved. I welcome him saying, 'I will take responsibility for pushing my client, the Assad regime, to deal with these chemical weapons.'"
