(AP) U.N. diplomats say the five permanent members of the divided Security Council appear to have reached agreement on a resolution to require Syria to dismantle its chemical weapons stockpiles.


Their comments Thursday came a day after Russia's deputy foreign minister said negotiators had overcome a major hurdle and agreed that the resolution would include a reference to Chapter 7 of the U.N. Charter, which allows for military and nonmilitary actions to promote peace and security.


The five veto-wielding members of the Security Council have been discussing what to include in a new resolution requiring that Syria's chemical weapons be secured and dismantled.


The U.S. and Russia had been at odds on how to enforce the resolution.


The diplomats spoke on condition of anonymity because negotiations have been private.
