BEIJING - Chinese President Xi Jinping told his US counterpart Barack Obama on Friday that the crisis in Syria should be resolved through a political solution and not a military strike, state news agency Xinhua said.

"A political solution is the only right way out for the Syrian crisis, and a military strike cannot solve the problem from the root," Xinhua quoted Xi as saying said at a meeting with Obama on the sidelines of a G20 summit in St. Petersburg in Russia."We expect certain countries to have a second thought before action."
