UK: Deal reached on UN resolution on Syria weapons

UNITED NATIONS (AP) - Britain's U.N. ambassador says key powers have reached agreement on a resolution to eliminate Syria's chemical weapons arsenal.

   Mark Lyall Grant tweeted that the five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council -- Britain, France, the U.S., Russia and China -- agreed on a "binding and enforceable draft ... resolution."

   He says Britain will introduce the text to the 10 other members of the Security Council at a meeting Thursday night.

   The U.S. and Russia had been at odds on how to enforce the resolution.
