Russia shows U.S. its plan for Syrian chemical weapons: Interfax

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia has given the United States its plan for placing Syria's chemical weapons arsenal under international control and intends to discuss it on Thursday in Geneva, the Interfax news agency cited a Russian source as saying on Wednesday.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, who is to meet Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in Geneva, said on Tuesday that Lavrov was expected to send him Russia's proposals for review by the Obama administration.
