Russia talking with US on assigning blame for Syria gas attacks

Russia said it has made some suggestions on how blame could be determined for chemical weapons attacks in war-torn Syria and will discuss the issue on Friday with the United States, which is pushing for the creation of a team of UN investigators. The United States gave Russia a draft United Nations Security Council resolution to study six weeks ago that would establish an accountability procedure in an attempt to pave the way for council action against those responsible. “If this is to be done, definitely there will need to be a resolution, but we’re wondering what would be the most straightforward and rational way to deal with this subject,” Russian U.N. Ambassador Vitaly Churkin told Reuters on Thursday.
