As U.N. negotiations over securing Syria’s chemical weapons hit an early impasse, Here & Now takes a closer look at what the negotiations will involve and how the U.S., Britain and France can craft a resolution that Russia would not veto.

At the heart of the recent impasse was Chapter VII of the Charter of the United Nations, which would authorize the use of force for noncompliance.

Guest

  • Jack Matlock, former U.S. ambassador to the Soviet Union who helped to negotiate the end of the Cold War.
