Russia proposes putting Syria chemical arms under global control
Russia said on Monday it would urge Syria to put its chemical weapons arsenal under international control if this would avert military strikes. Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, who called a news conference to announce the proposal, said he had already conveyed the idea to Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Moallem at talks in Moscow.

 

US Secretary of State John Kerry said on Monday that Syrian President Bashar Assad could avoid a US strike by surrendering his chemical weapons within a week, but immediately made clear he was not making a serious offer. (Reuters)
