U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry says plan envisages complete destruction of Syria's chemical arsenal by mid-2014; Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov stresses deal contains nothing about potential use of force if Syria fails to comply.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said Saturday they have reached an agreement on a framework for Syria to destroy all of its chemical weapons, and would seek a UN Security Council resolution that could authorize sanctions — short of military action — if President Bashar Assad's government fails to comply.

The deal averts the possibility of any immediate U.S. military action against Assad's government.
