Senators left a Tuesday afternoon meeting with few updates on how a new resolution regarding Syria was coming together.
The 45-minute meeting was held in Sen. John McCain's office. A Senate Democratic aide confirmed that Sens. Bob Menendez (D-NJ), Bob Corker (R-TN), Chris Coons (D-DE), and Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) were in attendance. Sen. Bob Casey (D-PA) attended, his office confirmed. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Carl Levin (D-MI) were also spotted leaving the meeting.
The senators gave little indication of how the meeting went. Menendez said only that the new resolution, being drafted to reflect the Syrian government's new willingness to surrender its chemical weapons, was "still a work in progress."
Schumer shooed reporters away while leaving with Coons.
"I think everybody is looking for ways to take (Syria) up on what they said they'd do," Levin told reporters. "It's too early to know whether they're serious or not."
As for timing, Corker told reporters earlier in the day that a Senate vote is "not going to happen this week."
