Ukraine row may hamper Syria chemical arms deal: Kerry

US Secretary of State John Kerry testifies before the Senate Appropriation Committee's State, Foreign Operations and Related Programs Subcommittee on March 13, 2014 in WashingtonEfforts to speed up the destruction of Syria’s chemical weapons arsenal could be hampered because of tensions with Russia over Ukraine, US Secretary of State John Kerry admitted Thursday. About a third of Syria’s toxic arms stockpile has now been removed from the war-torn country, and the rest is under control in 12 different locations, Kerry told US lawmakers. The challenge is now to remove the remaining weapons to Syria’s main port Latakia so they can be shipped out of the country to be destroyed. The deal to eliminate Syria’s chemical weapons was hammered out late last year between Kerry and his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov in talks in Geneva.
