US Secretary of State John Kerry has said the Assad regime in Syria deserves credit for its compliance in the destruction of the country's chemical weapons.
Speaking following a summit with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, Kerry said: "I think it is extremely significant that yesterday, within a week of the resolution being passed, some chemical weapons were already being destroyed.
"I think it is also credit to the Assad regime for complying rapidly, as they are supposed to. We hope that will continue...It is a good beginning and we should welcome a good beginning."
