WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama spoke by telephone to Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper on Monday to discuss potential responses to the August 21 chemical weapons attack in Syria, the White House said.

"We continue to call for a strong international response to reinforce the prohibition on the use of chemical weapons to send a clear message that this kind of atrocity can never be repeated," the White House said in a statement about the call.
