EUR/USD up to 1.3270 as US mulls Russian plan on Syria

The euro held steady around a more than one-week high in early Asian trade on Tuesday, as risk appetite ticked up after a Russian proposal on Syria raised the chance that a U.S. military strike would be delayed or averted.

President Barack Obama said Russia’s proposal to put Syria’s chemical weapons under international control “could potentially be a significant breakthrough.”

If Syria did so, that would “absolutely” put any U.S. military strike on pause, Obama told ABC News.
