Update from source link:

New comments on Monday from international leaders signaled a possible shift in how chemical weapons in Syria might be handled:

Russia said it will urge Syria to put chemical weapons under international control if that will avert military strikes.

Syria: Syria welcomed Russia’s proposal to put its chemical weapons under international control, but stopped short of saying explicitly that President Bashar al-Assad’s government accepted it.

Britain’s Prime Minister David Cameron said on Monday Syria should be encouraged to put its chemical weapons beyond use and under international supervision, and that the proposed chemical weapons handover idea for Syria must not be used as a “distraction tactic.”

Speaking on Monday morning, UN chief Ban Ki-Moon says if chemical weapons were used in Syria, the international community must do something about it, adding that the UN is considering asking the UN Security Council to demand Syria immediately transfer chemical weapons to safe sites in Syria where they can be stored and destroyed.

The UN Security Council suffers from “embarrassing paralysis” on Syria, and must overcome that deadlock, Ki-moon continued.
