Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday warned the US Congress it would be approving an "aggression" against Syria if it allowed US-led military strikes against the regime of President Bashar al-Assad.

"They would be allowing an aggression since everything that is outside the framework of the UN Security Council is an aggression, unless it is self-defence," Putin told members of his human rights council in the Kremlin, Russian news agencies reported.
