France’s foreign minister said Tuesday that Russia isn’t thrilled about a possible United Nations Security Council resolution aimed at controlling Syria’s chemical weapons stockpiles, Reuters reported.

“As I understood, the Russians at this stage were not necessarily enthusiastic, and I’m using euphemism, to put all that into the framework of a U.N. binding resolution,” Laurent Fabius told French lawmakers, as quoted by Reuters, following a telephone conversation with his Russian counterpart, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.
