US President Barack Obama on Friday slammed the “incapacity” of the UN Security Council to act on Syria and warned the world must not be “paralyzed” on responding to a chemical weapons attack.

“What we have seen so far at least is an incapacity at this point for the Security Council to move forward in the face of a clear violation of international norms,” Obama said, as he met Baltic leaders at the White House
