Russia extended an offer Thursday to provide security for the facility where Syria’s chemical weapons would be destroyed under an international agreement to disarm strongman Bashar Assad of his deadly arsenal, the Associated Press reports.

According to a Russian official quoted by the AP, within the next two days the United Nations Security Council will come to an agreement on a resolution requiring Damascus to dispose of its chemical weapon stockpiles.
