Syria focus of the G-8 Summit: Queen's University expert

2013-11-12

Queen’s University American politics expert Brandon Tozzo is available to comment on The G-8 Summit, currently ongoing in Northern Ireland, and the issues the leaders from eight of the world’s wealthiest countries discussed.

“Topping the agenda of the G-8 Summit was the conflict in Syria,” says Dr. Topzzo. “Barack Obama will try to rally support for the rebels, while opposition comes from Russia's Vladimir Putin. I expect tension between the two leaders over this issue. Other issues such as free trade and economic growth were also discussed.”
