MOSCOW, November 8 (Itar-Tass) -- Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe /OSCE/ did not discuss with the Albanian government a possibility of elimination of Syrian chemical weapons, OSCE Secretary General Lamberto Zannier said Friday as he answered questions from the students of Moscow's MGIMO Diplomatic University.
He indicated that the Syrian problem did not fall into the scope of issues supervised by the OSCE and fully stood within the realm of competence of the United Nations.
Zannier indicated, however, that decisions on joining the international efforts to destroy the stockpile of Syrian chemical weapons could be taken only by the political leadership of a country.
Reports published by a number of Russian mass media earlier spoke of Albania's consent to contribute to the elimination of the Syrian chemical arsenal.
