An official at the White House has told NBC News that talks over Russia's proposal to lock down Syria's chemical weapons are due to begin at the United Nations later today:
This morning, the President spoke separately with President Hollande and Prime Minister Cameron.
They agreed to work closely together, and in consultation with Russia and China, to explore seriously the viability of the Russian proposal to put all Syrian chemical weapons and related materials fully under international control in order to ensure their verifiable and enforceable destruction.
These efforts will begin today at the United Nations, and will include a discussion on elements of a potential UN Security Council Resolution.
