Highlights of an agreement by the United States and Russia establishing a framework for Syria to destroy all of its chemical weapons.
— The U.S. and Russia agree to work together on a new, binding U.N. Security Council resolution that would ensure verification of the agreement to secure and destroy Syria's chemical weapons stocks and remove its capability to produce such weapons. The resolution would allow for punitive measures — short of military action — for non-compliance if the Security Council approves them.
— The U.S. and Russia give Syria one week, until Sept. 21, to submit "a comprehensive listing, including names, types and quantities of its chemical weapons agents, types of munitions, and locale and form of storage, production, and research and development facilities."
— The U.S. and Russia agree that international inspectors should be on the ground in Syria by November and complete their initial work by the end of the month. They must be given "immediate and unfettered" access to inspect all sites. The destruction of chemical agent mixing and filling equipment must be completed by the end of November.
— The U.S. and Russia agree that all of Syria's chemical weapons stocks, material and equipment must be destroyed by mid-2014.
