MOSCOW (Reuters) - A Russian diplomat said on Wednesday that an initial U.N. Security Council resolution supporting a deal for Syria to scrap its chemical arms should be limited to that purpose, suggesting Moscow would oppose any threat of force at this stage.

Speaking in Damascus, Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said the resolution should support an expected decision by the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons backing the U.S.-Russian deal "and nothing more than that".
