Senior administration officials say President Barack Obama would be open to a United Nations resolution to secure Syria's chemical weapons that does not include the threat of military force for failing to abide by the agreement.
As the U.S. and Russia follow up an apparently contentious opening round of talks, their top diplomats will search for agreement on the nuts and bolts that go into a Russian proposal for securing Syria's chemical weapons stocks.
Secretary of State John Kerry and his team have opened two days of meetings with their Russian counterparts in Geneva. Kerry is hoping to come away with the outlines of a plan for securing and destroying vast stockpiles of Syrian chemical weapons.
The White House tried Wednesday to pin the success or failure of a diplomatic option to secure Syria's chemical weapons on Russia rather than the United States as Secretary of State John Kerry headed for Geneva to work on a Russian proposal for international inspectors to seize and destroy the deadly stockpile.
A French official says tense negotiations have begun on a proposed U.N. resolution that would put Syria's chemical weapons under international control and end a diplomatic stalemate over a deadly Aug. 21 poison gas attack.
President Obama again made his case for action against Syria in a speech from the East Room of the White House on Tuesday night while asking the House and Senate to put off a vote a vote on military action.
