KIMT NEWS 3 -- Our local congressional leaders are weighing in on what's happening in Syria.
U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar, DFL-Minnesota, was in that part of the world just a few months ago.
She visited Jordan and Turkey. She met with Syrian rebels in Turkey and refugees fleeing across the border into Jordan.
When she got back into the states she sat down with President Obama for about an hour to discuss what she saw.
"We talked to him about what we'd seen, it was a few months ago, as well as the need to make sure the aid that was coming through the UN was going to areas that we should be helping as opposed to all the Assad areas, so there were some real issues even back then," Klobuchar said.
She said it is important to work with the allies.
"I think that the approach of making sure that we're working with allies in how we respond to this horrific event is very, very important because the Arab nations play a critical role in this, so that's going to be important, working with Turkey," Klobuchar said.
