Russia's Putin warns of military action 'outside the framework of UN Security Council'

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.
