Arms inspectors must be on the ground in Syria by November with the goal of eliminating the country's chemical weapons by mid-2014, US Secretary of States John Kerry said Saturday.

"The inspectors must be on the ground no later than November... And the goal is to establish the removal by halfway through next year," Kerry told reporters at a joint press conference with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov after they wrapped up three days of talks in Geneva.
