Local reaction to the latest from Syria


Reaction is mixed to the news Syria has accepted a Russian plan to put its chemical weapons under international control.

Newsline 9 hit the streets to Wausau to get reaction to the news.

Some say they are optimistic the situation will now be resolved peacefully.

Others say they are uncertain.

A few we talked with say they don't believe any agreement can be reached.

An Assistant Professor of History at UW-Marathon County in Wausau says he found the Syrian's move surprising.

"Anytime you get two sides talking that is a positive thing. If they come together on this issue, who knows, perhaps we can come together to solve other problems, " said UWMC'S Jeff Leigh.
