WASHINGTON, September 18 (Itar-Tass) - U.S. believes that the objective of destroying Syrian chemical weapons by the middle of 2014 is realistic, State Department spokeswoman Jennifer Psaki told reporters Tuesday.

A reporter asked her to what decree the deadline might be realistic in the conditions of the civil war continuing in Syria.

She said the U.S. would have never agreed with the deadline had it not thought it to be feasible.

Psaki called on the world community to continue putting pressure on the administration of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad for fulfilling the target.

The framework document on the Syrian chemical weapons, which Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry signed at the end of a meeting in Geneva last Saturday sets forward the objective to remove all the types of chemical weapons and related equipment out of Syria and to destroy them within the first six months of 2014.
