Obama, Putin shadowbox at G20 summit


ST. PETERSBURG, Russia (MCT) — President Barack Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin exchanged a handshake, some pleasantries and seemingly little else Thursday as they met before an economic summit overshadowed by Obama’s call for a military strike against Putin’s ally, Syria.

The 15-second encounter came as Obama arrived at the G20 meeting of the world’s top 20 economic powers, hoping to sway world leaders to embrace his call for a targeted military strike against the regime his administration says unleashed lethal chemical weapons on its own citizens.
