UNITED NATIONS - President Barack Obama says the U.N. Security council must agree to a resolution on Syrian chemical weapons that includes consequences for the regime of President Bashar Assad if he doesn't meet demands to dismantle his chemical stockpile.

Obama told his U.N. audience Tuesday that failure to include such consequences would mean the international body is unable to enforce such requirements.

Obama said it would be, quote, "an insult to human reason and the legitimacy" of the U.N. to suggest that the Assad regime did not carry out a chemical attack on civilians last month.
