Obama calls on U.N. members to enforce chemical weapons ban

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: U.S. President Barack Obama called on the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday to come to an agreement on how to handle the use of chemical weapons in Syria. In his address, Obama accused the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad of using chemical weapons in an August 21 attack against civilians. He said that while the U.S. and Russia had made progress in a deal to take control of Syria's stockpiles, the U.N. Security Council must draft a "strong" resolution that would force Syria to follow through with the deal. "If we succeed, it will send a powerful message taht the use of chemical weapons has no place and this body means what it says," Obama said.
