Kerry called talks 'constructive' and made it clear that the threat of a U.S. military strike on Syria remains, as he seeks to work out a plan.

Syria's Bashar Assad is publicly agreeing to the Russian plan to secure and destroy his country's chemical weapons. But he tells Russian TV that the proposal will only work if the U.S. halts threats of military action. And that's something the United States isn't yet doing.


 Meantim Syria's U.N. ambassador says that Syria has become a full member of the treaty banning the use of chemical weapons as of Thursday.  He said President Bashar Assad signed a legislative decree earlier Thursday declaring Syria's approval to join the treaty, which requires destruction of all chemical weapons.
