UNITED NATIONS - Envoys from the five permanent U.N. Security Council member states will meet in New York on Wednesday to discuss plans to place Syrian chemical weapons under international control, diplomats said.

Among the topics to be discussed by US, British, Chinese, French and Russian diplomats is a French draft resolution that would give the government of Syrian President Bashar Assad an ultimatum to give up its chemical arsenal or face punitive measures, a text that Russia has said is unacceptable.

It was not immediately clear at what time and where the diplomats would meet. The meeting comes a day before US Secretary of State John Kerry and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov meet in Geneva in an attempt to break the deadlock on the 15-nation Security Council over Syria.
