LONDON (AP) - Secretary of State John Kerry says Syria's President Bashar Assad could resolve the crisis surrounding a chemical weapons attack simply by turning over "every single bit" of his weapons stock to the international community within a week.
But Kerry, holding a news conference in London with British counterpart William Hague on Monday, said he thinks Assad "isn't about to do that."
Kerry was asked about comments that Assad made to CBS anchorman Charlie Rose in which Assad said there was no conclusive evidence about who is to blame for the chemical weapons attack.
Asked about Assad's denial, Kerry said, "I just gave you real evidence."
The secretary of state said, "We know that his regime gave orders to prepare for a chemical attack. We know they deployed forces."
