WASHINGTON, September 14 (Itar-Tass) - The United States will not insist the UN Security Council’s draft resolution on chemical weapons in Syria should insist the threat of military force, because Russia is against it, US Administration officials told a special news briefing on Friday on the condition of anonymity.
At the same time the United States suggests including in the UN SC resolution a warning to the effect the Syrian government would face serious consequences, if it defies the agreement placing its chemical weapons stockpiles under international control. As US officials have explained, consequences should be understood not as a military operation, but other measures, including political and economic sanctions.
