Lavrov: UN resolution must not implicate Syria

Russia's Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has reportedly told his French counterpart that any proposal for a UN resolution holding Syria responsible for a chemical weapons attack would be "unacceptable".

Separately, Russia's foreign ministry said it will propose a UN draft declaration supporting an initiative to bring Syria's chemical weapons stockpile under international control.
