UNITED NATIONS ORGANISATION, December 12, 1:45 /ITAR-TASS/. A detailed plan on the elimination of chemical weapons in Syria will be made public by the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) on Tuesday, December 17, the U.N. Secretary-General’s spokesman, Martin Nesirky, said.
It is timely to talk about the contents of the document, he said.
Under the OPCW plan, chemical weapons should be withdrawn from Syria till February 5, 2014. The most dangerous agents will be eliminated outside Syria not later than March 31. The other substances will be eliminated not later than June 30, 2014. Toxic agents are planning to be eliminated at sea aboard a specially equipped ship due to be provided by the United States.
At present, practical issues are being discussed, Nesirky said.
Earlier, French permanent representative to the U.N. Gerard Araud said there were logistics problems that could hamper the withdrawal of chemical weapons outside of Syria.
There is no decision on ensuring security while chemicals were being transported throughout Syria to the Mediterranean port of Latakia. Then they will be loaded into ships given by Norway and Denmark. The parties failed to determine a port where chemicals will be reloaded into an American ship.
