Russian Parliament figures set to urge US Congress not to approve Syria strike

NOVO-OGARYOVO, Russia - Russian lawmakers will urge the US Congress not to approve military strikes on Syria, the speaker of the upper house of parliament told President Vladimir Putin on Monday.
"I think if we manage to establish a dialogue with our partners in the US Congress ... we could possibly better understand each other, and we hope that the US Congress will occupy a balanced position in the end and, without strong arguments in place ... will not support the proposal on use of force in Syria," Valentina Matviyenko said.
