Putin and Obama apart in more ways than one at G20 table | World news | The Guardian.

Putin is still playing an assertive hand on Syria, demanding publication of hard evidence on Assad deploying chemical weapons and UN consensus as a proxy for compliance with international law. Meanwhile Putin is still able to abandon Assad if the evidence is conclusive and preserve his reputation in Russia.

With little expected from the G20, any progressive towards international consensus on Syria would be a major bonus.

Any thoughts?
