WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Secretary of State John Kerry said Saturday that the United States and Russia have agreed on a framework that, if fully implemented, could mean the elimination of Syria's chemical weapons, following talks with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov in Geneva, Switzerland.
The U.S. and Russia are committed to the elimination of Syria's chemical weapons, and it must submit within one week a comprehensive list of its chemical weapons stockpile, Kerry said.
