STOCKHOLM - President Barack Obama said on Wednesday the credibility of the US Congress was on the line in the need to uphold a ban on chemical weapons and to respond to Syria's chemical weapons attack.

"My credibility is not on the line. The international community's credibility is on the line," Obama told a news conference in Sweden.

"America and Congress' credibility is on the line, because we give lip service to the notion that these international norms are important," Obama added.
