GENEVA, September 14 (Itar-Tass) -- Russia and the U.S. have reached an agreement, along with which Syria will be expected to submit a full list of its chemical weaponry within the next seven days and the entire arsenal of those weapons will be destroyed subsequently, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said here Saturday.
If the Syrian government fails to fulfill the conditions, which Russis and the U.S. reached agreement on, all the appropriate measures envisioned by Article 7 of the UN Charter will be put into effect then, he said.
Kerry clarified that the use of military force against Syria will be possible should Damascus fail to comply with the terms of a UN Security Council resolution that will be adopted on the basis of a plan drawn up by Russia and the U.S.
He also spoke in favor of transparency in the issues related to a possible combat use of chemical weapons in Syria.
The U.S. and Russia must do their best to ensure the destruction of chemical weaponry arsenals in Syria, since they pose a threat to the Syrian people and, on top of that, to the neighboring countries.
This goal is achievable if there is acountability, transparency, and timely measures, Kerry said, adding that Syria will thus come to terms with international standards and the U.S. will deem its obligations to society fulfilled.
The Assad regime should accept these conditions, Kerry said.
