GENEVA, September 14 (Itar-Tass) -- Russia and the U.S. have agreed that Syria should submit within the next seven days a comprehensive list of the chemical weaponry in its arsenals and these weapons will be fully destroyed later, says a framework agreement that was signed here Saturday upon the completion of talks between Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry.
The list shall include the brand names, types and amounts of chemical agents, types of weaponry, localities and methods of their storage and production, and delivery vehicles.
The agreement also stresses conviction of the two contracting parties that the most efficacious control over the Syrian chemical weapons can be attained if the maximum amounts of that weaponry are taken out of the country and destroyed under the control of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons.
Russia and the U.S. have set forward a goal of retrieving all the types of chemical weapons and equipment from Syria and to round up the operation by destroying them in the first half of 2014, the document says.
