If Syrian President Bashar al-Assad gives up his chemical weapons, a military strike would “absolutely” be on pause, President Obama said today.

“I consider this a modestly positive development,” Obama told ABC News’ Diane Sawyer in an interview at the White House when asked whether Syria’s apparent willingness to relinquish control of its chemical weapons would prevent a U.S. strike.

“Let’s see if we can come up with language that avoids a strike but accomplishes our key goals to make sure that these chemical weapons are not used,” the president said.

Obama’s comments come after the Russian foreign minister suggested today that Syria could avoid a U.S. attack by turning over its chemical weapons stockpiles over to international control and destroying them, a proposal the Syrian government “welcomed.”
