US official: US, Russia UN envoys to do more work on Syria resolution

UNITED NATIONS - US Secretary of State John Kerry and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov worked in a "constructive spirit" on Tuesday on a draft UN Security Council resolution that would demand the destruction of Syria's chemical arsenal, a US official said.
Kerry and Lavrov met on the sidelines of the annual gathering of world leaders at the United Nations. The US official, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said US Ambassador to the United Nations, Samantha Power, and Russian UN Ambassador Vitaly Churkin would now need to do more work on the draft text to reach agreement.
