The Associated Press reports Syria's Foreign Minister has said his country has accepted a Russian proposal to relinquish control of its chemical arms stores:


BREAKING: Syrian foreign minister says Syria has accepted Russian proposal to surrender control over its chemical weapons.


On Monday, Foreign Minister Walid al-Moallem stated that his country welcomed the Russian proposal, which called for Syria to place its chemical weapons under international control and for the weapons to be destroyed.
No time frame or further details were given about the proposal. It remained unclear whether Syria was making genuine strides toward a diplomatic resolution to the conflict that began in March 2011, or if the proposal was a ploy by Syrian President Bashar Assad to buy more time in the face of a potential U.S. strike.
More from AP:

MOSCOW (AP) — Syria said Tuesday it has accepted Russia's proposal to place its chemical weapons under international control for subsequent dismantling.
Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Moallem said Tuesday after meeting with Russian parliament speaker that his government quickly "agreed to the Russian initiative."

Al-Moallem added that Syria did so to "uproot U.S. aggression."
His statement sounded more definitive than his remarks Monday, when he said that Damascus welcomed Russia's initiative.

Meanwhile, Russia's Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said Tuesday that Russia is now working with Syria to prepare a detailed plan of action, which will be presented shortly.

Lavrov said that Russia will then be ready to finalize the plan together with U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons.

President Barack Obama said Monday the Russian proposal could be "potentially a significant breakthrough," but he remained skeptical that Syria would follow through

 COMMENT:

A very good news. But we believe when it is practically done and not only saying and agreeing to the proposal. I suppose the world Community of Nations after SYREAN Leader positively hands over the Chemical Weapons, should ask all other countries possessing Chemical weapons like” It has come to light that Israel possesses a stockpile of several hundred fission nuclear weapons, and perhaps even some high-yield thermonuclear weapons including other chemical” weapons to surrender their chemical weapons too.

Question arises that if the countries those who possesses nuke weapons what for,  if not for use to kill innocent human being. Can they offer any cogent  reasons rean for possessing the wmds other the killing human beings? The super Powers should take the lead in surrendering the chemical weapons of all types now. In addition and force and coerce those stupid countries that would deny to surrender the chemical weapons.

Time has come that it cannot be a world of double standard any more where one would have others would not be able to where one would be coerced to surrender and the others would be kissed for possessing the same weapons. All super powers should declare war against the countries that would deny complying with the demand.
