NEW YORK, September 10 (Itar-Tass) - President Barack Obama, in his interview to NBC News on Monday, referred to Russia's proposal to put Syrian chemical weapons under international control as "potentially a significant breakthrough".
"This (proposal) could be potentially a significant breakthrough. But we have to be skeptical because this is not how we've seen them operate over the last couple of years", he said.
Obama said US Secretary of State John Kerry is yet to find out to what extent Russia's proposal is serious.
