In his address, U.S. president Barack Obama said that the country will study Russia’s initiative to place chemical weapons in Syria under international control and will continue talks with Moscow and noted that the US will have consultations with Russia, China and other members of the UN Security Council over placing Syrian chemical weapons under international control.
