Far away from Syria, chemical watchdog to receive Nobel

Published: 12.08.13, 08:12 / Israel News

When the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) receives the Nobel Peace Prize in Oslo on Tuesday its staff will be preparing to destroy Syria's chemical weapons arsenal.


In naming the OPCW as the 2013 peace laureate on October 11, the Norwegian Nobel Committee highlighted the organization’s role as a rare example of successful global disarmament. OPCW Director Ahmet Uzumcu will be handed the award just weeks before a plan to destroy Damascus' chemical weapons stockpile gets under way. (AFP)
