OPCW: 80% of Syrian chemical weapons shipped out

Published: 04.19.14, 21:06 / Israel News

BEIRUT - Syria has shipped out or destroyed approximately 80 percent of its declared chemical weapons material, the head of the international team overseeing the disarmament process said on Saturday.

 

Sigrid Kaag, special coordinator of the joint mission of the United Nations and the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), said if the momentum was sustained, Syria should be able to meet its April 27 deadline to hand over all declared chemical agents.

 

"The renewed pace in movements is positive and necessary to ensure progress towards a tight deadline," Kaag said. (Reuters)
