WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The White House reiterated on Thursday that President Barack Obama would make a decision on how to respond to chemical weapons use in Syria based on U.S. national security interests.

Obama said in an interview with PBS on Wednesday that use of chemical weapons in Syria affected U.S. national interests.
