URGENT - Syria UN Resolution Update
(CNN) -- Three basic premises have been agreed upon for a U.N. Security Council resolution on Syria's chemical weapons disarmament, a U.N. diplomat told CNN on Wednesday. Russia has basically agreed to the points, but "small issues" remain to be decided, the source said. The deal could still fall apart. According to the source, the three premises are: 1. Accountability for the August 21 attacks; 2. Binding and enforceable language for measures against Syria in case of violations in the disarmament regime or the use of chemical weapons; 3. The council will remain seized of the matter, meaning that further discussion will be expedited.
