United Nations: Russia`s deputy foreign minister says agreement on a UN Security Council resolution requiring Syria to dismantle its chemical weapons stockpiles is likely in the next two days.
Gennady Gatilov said that the text of the resolution will include a reference to Chapter 7 of the UN Charter, which includes military and non-military actions to promote peace and security.
But he stressed that there will not be an automatic trigger for Chapter 7 measures, which means another Security Council resolution will be required if Syria fails to comply.
The US and Russia had been at odds on how to enforce the resolution.
Britain`s UN Ambassador Mark Lyall Grant told he expects the remaining differences to be worked out "in the next few days."
