THE HAGUE, September 29 (Itar-Tass) - The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) has no grounds to say that the Syrian authorities are seeking to conceal their chemical weapons arsenals, OPCW representatives, whose names and positions were not disclosed, told journalists on Sunday.
The OPCW officials stressed the organization’s inspectors should be given access to any place they might choose for inspection. So far, they said, it was difficult to say how many people would be involved in the process of chemical weapons elimination, how many facilities it would take and how much it would cost.
Earlier, the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons called on its member countries to make financial contribution to sponsor the destruction of Syrian chemical weapons. However, OPCW representatives did not tell the journalists whether any of the countries had already transferred some funds. The process has just started, they said and added that it was up to the Syrian authorities to ensure security of international inspectors.
