Syria peace envoy Brahimi says no strikes without UN approval

Brahimi spoke on the sidelines of a G20 summit after meetings with foreign ministers including Russia's Sergei Lavrov, who said many nations realize that striking Syria without Security Council backing would scuttle the chances of reaching a political solution.
