EINNISKILLEN, Northern Ireland - The endorsement at the G8 summit of political negotiations on Syria's two-year civil war met the goals pursued by US President Barack Obama, including ones he discussed with Russian President Vladimir Putin, a senior US administration official said on Tuesday.

"The communique achieves the objectives on Syria that the President was pursuing in his talks with other leaders, including President Putin, notably on a political process to resolve the conflict, investigation of chemical weapons use, and humanitarian support for the Syrian people," the senior administration official said.
