Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov says Russia can send its military personnel to help in the proposed operation to eliminate Syrias chemical arms.

Lavrov told Russian TV that military observers could help Syria destroy its stockpiles under a US-Russian deal.

He also accused the US of using "blackmail" over a UN resolution.

The international chemical weapons watchdog, the OPCW, says Syria has met the deadline to submit details of its estimated 1,000-tonne chemical arsenal.
