Russia announced on Tuesday that it is working on an “effective, clear and concrete” plan with the Syrian government.

The diplomatic initiative marks a sudden reversal from weeks in which the West appeared to be heading towards intervention. Russia’s Interfax news agency quoted the Syrian Foreign Minister Walidal-Moualem, who was visiting Moscow, as saying Damascus had agreed to the Russian initiative because it would “remove the grounds for American aggression.”

Meanwhile, in the United States there are reports that the U.S. Senate may not vote this week on the use of military force in Syria. The US, along with France, had been poised to launch missile strikes on Syria in punishment for apparent chemical weapons attacks which killed hundreds on civilians on August 21.
However, US House Speaker Boehner has reportedly said that the American people are not supportive of Obama’s position on Syria and a stronger case will need to be put forward.
