JERUSALEM, Israel -- U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry visited Israel and briefed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on the U.S.-Russian agreement to remove chemical weapons from Syria. Kerry said the proposal is the biggest effort of its kind.

"We will put in place, what we hope to put in place, through the United Nations, what Russian and the United States agreed on, which is the most far-reaching chemical weapons removal effort," Kerry said.

Kerry added that diplomacy is the preferred path, but that the threat of military action remains "on the table." 

Netanyahu said for diplomacy to have "any chance to work, it must be coupled with a credible military threat," applying the same principle to Iran.

"What is true of Syria is true of Iran and, by the way, vice-versa," he said.

"The Syrian regime must be stripped of all its chemical weapons and that would make the entire region a lot safer," Netanyahu said.
