THE HAGUE, March 18. /TASS/. Three out of 12 chemical weapon production facilities have been eliminated in Syria, Ahmet Uzumcu, the director general of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), told TASS on Wednesday.
"There are 12 production facilities which need to be destroyed, three of them have already been destroyed," Uzumcu said.
"Actually, the third one was completed two days ago and the remaining nine will be destroyed in the coming months," he said adding that the timeline would be clear later.
Uzumcu said that 98% of Syria's chemical weapons stockpile had already been destroyed.
"The overall progress is quite satisfactory," he added.
