ISTANBUL (AP) — Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan is casting doubt on a proposal to secure Syria's chemical weapons. He says the Syrian government should not be trusted and is only seeking to stave off an international intervention.
Erdogan said Thursday that the Syrian government has "violated all of its promises in order to buy more time to continue massacring people, and it will continue to do so." He added: "When it comes to chemical weapons, we don't believe them (the Syrian government) and we don't trust them."
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and Russia's Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov are meeting in Geneva to discuss the plan to place Syria's chemical arsenal under international control.
