WASHINGTON - The United States and allies are exploring two options for destroying Syria's chemicals weapons, US Secretary of State John Kerry said on Monday after Albania rejected a request to host the destruction process.

Kerry dismissed reports that a plan to eliminate the weapons was off-track, saying the Organization for Prohibition of Chemical Weapons had until the end of the year to remove the chemical weapons from Syria.

Asked whether the process had stalled after no country had agreed to take them, Kerry told a news conference: "We are on target. Now, one country or another may have examined the question of taking those weapons under their jurisdiction in order to destroy them. We are not without other alternatives.
