Russia Says UN Resolution Proposal 'Unacceptable'

(CNN) - Russia will propose a U.N. draft declaration backing an initiative to put Syrian chemical weapons under international control, the Russian Foreign Ministry said Tuesday.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has told France that its own draft resolution holding the Syrian government responsible for the use of chemical weapons is "unacceptable."

The U.N. Security Council will hold an emergency meeting on Syria at 4 p.m. ET Tuesday, the U.N. spokesman's office said.
