McCain: 'Deeply disappointed' by UN Syria resolution

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) expressed deep disappointment Friday with a United Nations Security Council resolution stripping Syria of its chemical weapons.

McCain said the resolution lacks any meaningful enforcement if the Syrian government fails to give up its chemical weapons stockpile.

“It is deeply disappointing,” McCain said on CBS’s "This Morning."

“The Russians have said consistently that they would not enact meaningful sanctions against Syria if they failed to comply," he said. "There is no requirement. The only requirement is to go back to the U.N. Security Council."
