Watchdog: Destruction of Syrian weapons abroad best option

Wednesday, November 6, 2013 - 11:22

Destroying Syria's chemical weapons outside the country would be the best option, given its ongoing conflict, the head of the international watchdog overseeing the operation said Tuesday, dpa reported.

A Syrian proposal "that the destruction of chemical weapons be carried out outside of the country constitutes the most viable option," Ahmet Uzumcu, director general of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, told a meeting of the body's executive council.

Uzumcu also said Syria has reported the destruction of 99 unfilled warheads at one of its weapons sites with similar weapons expected to be destroyed at six other sites.

A Syrian delegation was due Tuesday in The Hague, where the watchdog is based, to discuss final plans for the elimination of the country's arsenal of the internationally banned weapons, Uzumcu said.
