BREAKING NOW: 5 U.N. Security Council Members Come to Agreement on Syria’s Chemical Weapons

5 permanent members of the UN Security Council appear to have reached agreement on Syrian chemical weapons resolution, diplomats say

U.N. diplomats say the five permanent members of the divided Security Council appear to have reached agreement on a resolution to require Syria to dismantle its chemical weapons stockpiles.

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

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

The diplomats spoke on condition of anonymity because negotiations have been private.
