Kerry on Syria: 'We cannot have hollow words'

US Secretary of State John Kerry hailed the US-Russia agreement on destroying Syria's chemical weapons, but warned against "hollow words".

Speaking from Israel, where Kerry was meeting Prime Minister Netanyahu, he said: "We cannot have hollow words in the conduct of international affairs."

He also emphasised that the US government recognises just removing the chemical weapons is "not all that the government seeks to do".
