White House tells lawmakers diplomacy is priority on Syria

White House chief of staff Denis McDonough told Democratic members of the US House of Representatives on Tuesday that diplomacy, rather than military action, is the priority on Syria now, US Representative Gene Green said.


"We're going to wait and see how this offering" for securing Syria's chemical-weapons arsenal plays out, Green told Reuters as he left a briefing by McDonough for House Democrats. (Reuters)
