Syria Dismantles and Surrenders Weapons

Moscow (AP) - Syrian President Bashar Assad says his government has agreed to surrender its chemical weapons in response to Russia's initiative and not because of the U.S. threat of attack. He tells Russian TV that "the U.S. threats hadn't influenced" his government's decision. Russia on Monday proposed that Syria place its chemical weapons under international control and eventually dismantle them to avert a U.S. strike, and Syria quickly accepted the proposal. Secretary of State John Kerry and his Russian counterpart will be discussing details for the plan today in Geneva.
