GENEVA (AP) - The United States and Russia has agreed to a framework for Syria to destroy all of its chemical weapons.

The agreement was announced following a meeting with Secretary of State John Kerry and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov Saturday.

The agreement sets a timeline and conditions for how Syria must comply.

Both countries agreed to seek a U. N. Securty Council Resolution for sanctions if Syria fails to comply, including military and non-military sanctions.

The agreement says inspectors must be on the ground by November and destruction or removal of the chemical weapons must be completed by mid-2014.
