Syria conflict: Putin insists Russia 'not breaching law'

Russia is not breaching any laws by supplying arms to "the legitimate government of Syria", the Russian president has said.

Speaking after talks at Downing Street, Mr Putin said "blood was on the hands of both parties" in the conflict.

Mr Putin and British Prime Minister David Cameron both agreed that the long-planned Geneva conference, which hopes to find a political resolution to the crisis, was "the most appropriate means of resolving the Syrian issue."
