Newscast Media WASHINGTON—Russia's Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov confirmed Thursday that after weeks of negotiations a deal had been struck with the United States on a resolution regarding Syria's chemical weapons stockpile.

"We reached an understanding with the United States on a draft resolution," Lavrov told reporters at the Security Council.

He gave no details on the contents of the draft agreement.

The US and Russia are expected to submit the resolution to the full 15-member Security Council. A meeting in New York has been called for 8 p.m. local time.

The resolution has the potential to become the first to be passed by the Security Council since the Syrian conflict erupted in March 2011.  Add Comments>>
