UK, France, US Urge Tough UN Resolution on Syria
France, Britain and the US have announced they would seek a "strong" UN resolution with "serious consequences" if Syria fails to hand over its chemical weapons.
French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius, French President Francois Hollande, British Foreign Secretary William Hague and US Secretary of State John Kerry met in Paris on Monday to discuss the crisis in Syria.
They agreed there had to be a "precise timetable" for the dismantling of weapons in Syria.
The meeting took place two days after Russia and the United States hammered out a deal on chemical weapons that could avert US military action. Under the deal, Syria has agreed to reveal its stockpile within a week and eliminate the chemical arsenal by mid-2014.
Syria agreed last week to join the global Chemical Weapons Convention.
