Britain, France, US to offer UN resolution motion on Syria
MOSCOW (AFP) - Britain, France and the United States will introduce a United Nations Security Council resolution on Syria's chemical weapons on Tuesday, which includes a "proper timetable" for the Assad regime to hand over its chemical weapons, British Prime Minister David Cameron said.
"Britain and France and America will be tabling a UN Security Council resolution today," Mr Cameron told British lawmakers as officials from the three countries met at the UN headquarters in New York.
Asked when the resolution should be introduced, Mr Cameron told lawmakers: "I think that should happen today.
"I think we do need some deadlines, we do need some timetables. So I think in any Security Council resolution that we draft - and Britain, France and America are discussing this right now - we need to be clear there do need to be some thresholds," he said.
