United States (US) president, Barack Obama, has been facing obstacles at home and abroad, in his bid to gain support to launch military action in Syria.
Obama this week plans to urge reluctant world leaders to back an American-led strike against Syria even though the prospects for military action could depend on a fractured US Congress.
The uncertainty surrounding Syria will hang over the president's three-day overseas trip, which includes a global summit in Russia after a stop in Sweden.
Another uncertainty that will be hanging over Obama's trip is the tense relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin, the world leader who is hosting the Group of 20 gathering and has perhaps done the most to stymie international efforts to oust Syria's Bashar Assad.
