ST. PETERSBURG — President Barack Obama and his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin, held “constructive” talks Friday on Syria on the sidelines of the Group of 20 summit in Russia.

The two leaders hold opposing views on whether military action should be taken against the Syrian government over its alleged use of chemical weapons on its own people.

obamaObama is seeking to rally domestic and international support for military strikes on Syria, while Putin — a determined ally of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad — has challenged the assertion that regime forces were behind the attacks. Syria’s government blames rebel forces.

Obama said the two leaders had a “candid, constructive” conversation but acknowledged that Putin was unlikely to shift his position on military action against Syria.

However, he said, they could both agree to work toward a political resolution to the crisis.

    Action without Security Council approval will be a grave violation of international law and only worsen Russian-American relations. What it will bring in future? The Bible says: "At the appointed time [the king of the north] will return back [the return of Russia in this context means crisis, which will eclipse the Great Depression. Not only the eurozone will break up, but also the European Union and NATO. Then many countries of the former Eastern block will return to Russia's zone of influence]. And will enter into the south [Georgia], but it will not be as the former [1921] or as the latter [2008], for the dwellers of coastlands of Kittim [USA, in the beginning without Britain] will come against him, and he will be dejected, and will go back." (Daniel 11:29-30a).

    What will induce the "king of the north" to enter into the south? Jesus said: "For nation will rise against nation", like as in 2008, and then…

    Moses writes: "But ships from the direction of Kittim [US Navy], and troubling Asshur [Russia] and troubling Eber [remaining enemies, including Iran and China]." (Numbers 24:24a).

    This will be a global nuclear war. (Revelation 6:4)
