A Russian plan for Syrias chemical weapons to be put under international control has sparked immediate disputes over resolutions at the United Nations. The UK, US and France want a timetable and consequences of failure spelt out, and Washington has warned it will "not fall for stalling tactics". Russia said any draft putting the blame on Syria was unacceptable and urged a declaration backing its initiative. US President Barack Obama is due to address the nation on Tuesday evening.
