Barack Obama has said he will delay a military strike against Syria if the Assad regime agrees to place its chemical weapons under international control.

The US president said he was “absolutely” prepared to pause plans for military action – but was skeptical that Syria would relinquish control.

The potential for a diplomatic solution came after Russia proposed that Syria turn its chemical weapons over in return for avoiding strikes from the US.
