Further, during this meeting Russia urged the UN and asked Syria to put its chemical weapons stockpiles under international control and look for their subsequent destruction. The UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon also stated that if the weapon experts concluded that the chemicals had been used, then he will consider weapons destruction and ask the Security Council to approve a "safe zone" in Syria for the same.
The proposal of handing over the chemical weapons sounded as a cautious note and a rhetorical argument rather than a serious offer over the plan to the US officials. Moreover handing over the chemical weapons by the Assad regime has snowballed a serious diplomatic initiative.
Syrian leader Assad has further turned the pages by giving an interview to US network PBS where he has warned the US against intervention by stating that the Middle East was "on the brink of explosion". He further stated that there is going to be repercussions and the one’s are going to pay the price that are not wise with dealing with terrorists. However, he did not explain that whether his comment was a threat that Syrian-backed groups such as Hezbollah would launch retaliation, or a warning that strikes would bolster al-Qaeda-linked groups.
Although there is no evidence that his government responsible for the 21 August attack, Syria is prepared for an attack and the US will only ignite a fire across the Middle East if it attacks the region. Moreover, any attack to the region may also trigger more chemical warfare and the outcome decides on whether "terrorist" rebels possess those weapons again. As the government is not the only player in this region; there are different parties, different factions, and different ideologies in the decision.
Many US politicians and members of the public believe that military action could draw the nation into a prolonged war and spark broader hostilities in the region. Even the victory of Mr. Obama in Congress will leave him in an enviable position. Although there is a very little reason to think that the Assad regime will sincerely give up the chemical weapon, but there is an emotional desire to avoid war.
