Low expectations for G20 finding common cause on Syria

TV AND WEB RESTRICTIONS~**NO ACCESS SWEDEN*~ World leaders arrive in Russia for the G20 summit. They come as Syria has moved to the forefront of the international agenda -- with few signs of common cause. Its no surprise says political analyst Konstantin Eggert. (SOUNDBITE) (Russian) POLITICAL ANALYST KONSTANTIN EGGERT, SAYING: "It's absolutely unrealistic to expect any practical decisions for example on the Syrian issue or on the problems of the global financial system when these 20 countries have obviously different or even conflicting interests". Much of the focus has been on the US and Russia, who are on opposite sides of the Syrian conflict. U.S. President Barack Obama is trying to rally Western support for military action against Syria over what Washington believes is the killing of 1,400 people in a chemical weapons attack. Russian President Vladimir Putin wants Syria put on the G20 agenda and is unlikely to pull any punches.
