Russia’s Syria arms plan wins cautious welcome

US Secretary of State John Kerry will travel to Geneva on Thursday to meet with his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov to discuss the Syria crisis, a US official told AFP.

The news came shortly after Kerry spoke by telephone with Lavrov seeking details of a Russian proposal to neutralize Syria’s chemical weapons stock by putting it under international control.
