Foreign Secretary William Hague has demanded "swift action" be taken to transfer Syrian chemical weapons while hailing the agreement between Russia and the US.
I welcome today's announcement of a framework agreement to ensure the destruction of the Syrian chemical weapons programme. This is a significant step forward.
The priority must now be full and prompt implementation of the agreement, to ensure the transfer of Syria's chemical weapons to international control.
The onus is now on the Assad regime to comply with this agreement in full. The international community, including Russia, must hold the regime to account.
This includes doing everything we can to stop the continuing bloodshed in Syria, bringing all sides together to agree a political solution to the conflict.
Mr Hague is due to travel to Paris on Monday to be briefed by US Secretary of State John Kerry on the details of the plan along with French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius.
