WASHINGTON, September 10 (Itar-Tass) - President Barack Obama would still prefer a "diplomatic solution" to the situation around Syria. In his interview given to the PBS television network on Monday he said that if the international community gets a verifiable and practicable mechanism of control over chemical weapons in Syria, he would entirely favour that.
Obama was asked to comment on the news of the past day, including the proposal about placing Syrian stocks of chemical weapons under the control of the international community. Obama confirmed that he spoke about all those things with the President of Russia. He also assigned US Secretary of State John Kerry to go ahead with the dialogue on the subject with the Russian side. However, it was not clear from his remarks whether he meant in this case concretely the new proposal or the Syria issue as a whole.
