A U.S.-Russian deal to remove Syria's chemical weapons was welcomed cautiously in israel, just hours before planned talks in Jerusalem between Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry. Netanyahu, in a speech before the meeting, said the agreement would be judged on whether it achieved "the complete destruction" of the Syrian government's chemical weapons stockpiles, and he pointed toward Iran's nuclear program as another test of world resolve.
