US President Barack Obama welcomed a US-Russian accord on Saturday aimed at getting control of Syrian chemical weapons and warned that if diplomacy fails the United States remains prepared to act.




Obama said the US would work with Russia, Britain, France and the United Nations to ensure there are consequences. Much work remains to be done, he said.




And if diplomacy fails on Syria, "the United States remains prepared to act," he said.
