MOSCOW, October 12 (Itar-Tass) - Moscow welcomes the decision of the Nobel’s Committee to pass the 2013 prize for peace to the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons /OPCW/, the foreign ministry’s commentary on the authority’s site reads.
“The organisation is a most effective international structure in disarmament and non-proliferation,” the ministry said. “It has been settling most complicated technical and other issues.” The mission, OPCW jointly with the United Nations Organisation has begun in elimination of Syria’s chemical weapon, is a clear demonstration of that.
“Russia participated actively in the work on the Convention on banning chemical weapons, as the main objective for all the participating countries is removing from the world the danger of using this anti-human weapon.”
“We adhere to the basic objectives of the bilateral agreement, which, following Syria’s joining it, features 190 countries already,” the foreign ministry said.
