US Republican senators John McCain and Lindsay Graham had harsh words Saturday for the American-Russian agreement on the control of Syria's chemical weapons, calling it a start down a "diplomatic blind alley."

The deal brokered by US Secretary of State John Kerry and his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov gives Syria one week to provide a detailed list of all of its chemical weapons, and demands that the Assad regime ensure international inspectors "the immediate and ufettered right to inspect any and all sites in Syria."

President Barack Obama on Saturday welcomed the deal, but warned that the option of military strikes on Syria was still on the table should the regime fail to comply with the new agreement.
