TEL-AVIV, September 12 (Itar-Tass) - The Russian initiative on chemical weapons could put an end to the tragic events in Syria, Israeli Minister of International Relations, Strategic Affairs and Intelligence Yuval Steinitz stated on Thursday.

“I cannot say that we are sure, but if the Russian proposal leads to the liquidation of chemical weapons in Syria, it will pave the way to ending the tragedy, removing the threat (of chemical weapons use),” the minister said in an interview with Army Radio.

The same opinion has Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. He believes that the Syrian government should be deprived of his existing chemical weapons, and those responsible for its use near Damascus should be punished.

Israeli President Shimon Peres is also confident that the Syrian problem would be better solved by diplomacy rather than military means.

However, the head of state stressed that if Damascus does not cooperate sincerely, "I have no doubt that the US military will intervene."
