UNITED NATIONS — Britain’s U.N. ambassador says key powers have reached agreement on a resolution to eliminate Syria’s chemical weapons arsenal.

Mark Lyall Grant tweeted that the five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council — Britain, France, the U.S., Russia and China — agreed on a “binding and enforceable draft … resolution.”

He says Britain will introduce the text to the 10 other members of the Security Council at a meeting Thursday night.

The U.S. and Russia had been at odds on how to enforce the resolution.
