Putin says he wants impartial investigation into Syria chemical attack

SOCHI - Russia condemns the use of chemical weapons by anyone and wants a full and impartial investigation into last month's poison gas attack on the Syrian city of Khan Sheikhoun, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Tuesday.
"Those guilty must be found and punished," Putin told a news conference after talks with German Chancellor Angela Merkel held in Russia's Black Sea resort of Sochi. "But this can be only done after an impartial investigation."
"A solution in Syria can be only found by peaceful means and under the aegis of the United Nations," Putin said.
