JERUSALEM (AP) — Israeli leaders are expressing cautious hope about a U.S.-Russia agreement that would require Syria to identify and eliminate its chemical weapons by mid-2014.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Sunday that Israel hoped the plan would lead to the "complete destruction" of Syria's chemical weapons arsenal and would push the world to stop Iran from nuclear weapons armament.
President Shimon Peres says the possibility of U.S. military action if the plan fails should "teach a lesson" to Iran.
Still, Intelligence Minister Yuval Steinitz told Army Radio that the agreement's deadline was not speedy enough, and Syrian President Bashar Assad could try to hide weapons.
Avigdor Lieberman, chair of parliament's foreign affairs and defense committee, told Army Radio that Israel would compare its knowledge of Syria's weapons to the inventory Syria submits.
