Putin, Cameron at odds over chemical weapons attack evidence in Syria

London, Aug. 27 (ANI): British Prime Minister David Cameron has told Russian president Vladimir Putin there was little doubt a chemical weapons attack had been carried out by the Syrian regime.

Cameron made the comments while speaking over phone to Putin in the wake of last week's suspected chemical attack in Syria.

Putin however told him they had no evidence that an attack had taken place or who was responsible, the Downing Street said.

According to the BBC, a decision on whether to recall Parliament will be made on Tuesday.

The alleged chemical attack took place on Wednesday near the Syrian capital Damascus, and reportedly killed more than 300 people.

US Secretary of State John Kerry said the attack was a 'moral obscenity'.

UN inspectors have visited the site of the suspected attack, although their trip was delayed after their convoy was shot at by snipers, the report added. (ANI)
