(Interfax – MOSCOW, October 2, 2013) Russian President Vladimir Putin said he was content with the situation development regarding chemical weapons liquidation in Syria.

“Judging by what work related to the Syrian chemical weapons liquidation is currently being held, we have grounds to think that we are on the right path,” Putin said when answering questions at the Investment Forum “Russia Calling!”

“I want to emphasize once again that we are not taking credit for this. At least not us alone. This is our common credit. This is the credit of the Unite States and (U.S.) President (Barack) Obama as well,” Putin said.

Putin said in response to the statement that the U.S. did not rule out military actions on Syria that “we do not rule out any possibilities of use of force.”

“But solely upon the decision of the UN Security Council. Or as reaction to direct aggression towards some country. There are only two legal ways to use force,” the Russian president said.
