UNITED NATIONS - The United Nations said on Thursday it has received a document from Syria on joining the global anti-chemical weapons treaty, something the government of Syrian President Bashar Assad promised as part of a deal to avoid US air strikes.

"In the past few hours we have received a document from the government of Syria that is being translated, which is to be an accession document concerning the Chemical Weapons Convention," UN spokesman Farhan Haq told reporters.
