Kerry demands Syria keep its weapons pledge
Kerry spoke after Assad said in a Russian television interview that he was willing to cede control of his country’s chemical weapons — but only if the United States stops threatening military action and sending weapons to Syrian rebels.
Assad even blamed the United States for last month’s chemical attack. “The threats were based on a provocation,” he said in the interview. “It was carried out using chemical weapons in Ghouta, a suburb of Damascus. That provocation was carried out by the U.S. administration.”
