A UN Security Council resolution to implement an agreement to strip Syria of its chemical weapons will not be under Chapter 7 of the UN charter that allows the use of force, Russia said Tuesday. "The resolution... will not invoke Chapter 7," Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said at a news conference with his French counterpart Laurent Fabius, saying this was already made clear at US-Russia talks in Geneva and that the resolution would control the implementation of decisions taken by the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW).
