WASHINGTON - US Senator Robert Menendez, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said he hoped a Senate resolution on the use of military force in Syria would be written by the end of Tuesday, so the committee could vote on it on Wednesday.

He said in a committee hearing on Syria that committee leaders and staff were working on a text that would let President Barack Obama's administration pursue military action in Syria, but ensure that it is not an open-ended engagement "and specifically not with boots on the ground, American troops on the ground."
