U.S., Russia agree to deal on Syria chemical-weapons disarmament

  • The U.S. and Russia reached a deal yesterday whereby Syria will have a week to provide information about its chemical weapons and then until the middle of next year to let international inspectors destroy them.
  • Given Syria's civil war, it's not clear how realistic the timetable is. Still, Russia and the U.S. hope that the agreement could pave the way for a broader deal to end the conflict.
  • If the agreement is not implemented, the U.S. is prepared to take military action, President Obama said.
  • Gold and oil ended the week lower on Friday as the anxiety over Syria continued to wane.
