MOSCOW - A Russian diplomat said on Wednesday that an initial UN Security Council resolution supporting a deal for Syria to scrap its chemical arms should be limited to that purpose, suggesting Moscow would oppose any threat of force at this stage.

Speaking in Damascus, Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said the resolution should support an expected decision by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons backing the US-Russian deal "and nothing more than that".
