Syria's President Bashar al-Assad has spoken about placing its chemical weapons under international control and said that the US must "stop threatening us and supplying terrorists with weapons" .

Speaking on Russian TV's Rossiya 24, he said that only Russia could make the agreement happen as "Syria has neither contacts with, nor trust in, America".

US and Russian foreign ministers are preparing to meet in Geneva to discuss the plan, proposed by Moscow this week.

The US accuses the Syrian regime of killing hundreds in a chemical attack.
