Kerry says U.S. won't wait long for concrete plan on Syria chemical weapons
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States is waiting to see a real and verifiable plan from Russia for removing chemical weapons from Syria but will not wait long and will not accept a delaying tactic, Secretary of State John Kerry said on Tuesday.
"We're waiting for that proposal. But we're not waiting for long," Kerry told a hearing of the House of Representatives Armed Services Committee.
"President Obama will take a hard look at it. But it has to be swift, it has to be real, it has to be verifiable. It cannot be a delaying tactic," Kerry told the panel.
