Russia chemical arms plan won't stop Syria bloodshed

A Russian proposal under which Syria has agreed to surrender its chemical weapons to international supervision will not end the bloodshed in the war-torn country, Gulf monarchies said Tuesday.

"This does not stop the bloodshed in Syria," Bahrain Foreign Minister Sheikh Khaled al-Khalifa, whose country is the current president of the six-nation Gulf Cooperation Council, said following a ministerial meeting.
