President Obama spoke at the United Nations General Assembly in New York on Tuesday, addressing both Syria and Iran in his speech.
FOX News Radio's Mike Majchrowitz reports from New York:
The President advised the UN that if it wants a peaceful solution to Syria's chemical weapons it needs to approve consequences should Syria not live up to a deal to dispose of them
(President Obama) "If we cannot agree even on this, then it will show that the United Nations is incapable of enforcing the most basic of international laws."
As for recent overtures from Iran -- the President said the two nations should be able to resolve their differences but...
(President Obama) "Conciliatory words will have to be matched by actions that are transparent and verifiable."
The President said the U.S. remains committed to preventing Iran from developing nuclear weapons.
