New Delhi: As Syria accepted a Russian proposal to place its chemical weapons under international control for dismantling, India said Tuesday that it views this as a "positive development".

Indian external affairs ministry spokesperson Syed Akbaruddin said that India`s approach on chemical weapons is that "we have consistently advocated elimination and complete destruction of chemical weapons, and pending elimination, it is viably important to ensure that all chemical stockpiles are in safe and secure custody."

India has also said that it is not for a military solution to the Syria issue and consistently called for a political solution, especially through the Geneva process.

He said "taking the four elements together, if there are any proposals that are moving in this direction, obviously in India we will see these as positive developments".

Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Moallem said in Moscow that his government has agreed to the plan to put its chemical weapons under international control to "derail US aggression".
