September 12, 2013 13:43

LONDON - British Foreign Secretary William Hague said on Thursday any deal to place Syria's chemical weapons under international control had to be enforceable and ensure the arsenal did not fall into the wrong hands.

"We will need to have confidence that all chemical weapons have been identified and secured and that they would not fall into the wrong hands," Hague told parliament, saying there were "immense practical difficulties" in securing such weapons.
