Apparent deal on Syria resolution: UN diplomats

Last Updated: Friday, September 27, 2013 - 01:11

United Nations: Diplomats at the United Nations say the five permanent members of the divided UN Security Council appear to have reached agreement on a resolution to require Syria to dismantle its chemical weapons stockpiles.
Their comments on Thursday came a day after Russia`s deputy foreign minister said negotiators had overcome a major hurdle and agreed that the text of the resolution would include a reference to Chapter 7 of the UN Charter, which allows for military and nonmilitary actions to promote peace and security.

The five veto-wielding members of the Security Council have been discussing for weeks what to include in a new resolution requiring that Syria`s chemical weapons stockpile be secured and dismantled.

The US and Russia had been at odds on how to enforce the resolution.
