Russia will propose a U.N. draft declaration backing an initiative to put Syrian chemical weapons under international control, the Russian Foreign Ministry said today.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said the French draft resolution holding the Syrian government responsible for the use of chemical weapons is "unacceptable."

President Barack Obama, French President Francois Hollande and British Prime Minister David Cameron have agreed to work together to explore the Russian proposal seriously, a White House official said today.

The U.N. Security Council is scheduled to meet in an emergency session at 4 p.m. ET.
