THE HAGUE, Netherlands — THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — Syria has filed details of its poison gas and nerve agent program and an initial plan to destroy it to the world’s chemical weapons watchdog, the organization announced Sunday.
The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons said in a statement that Syria completed its declaration Thursday, as part of a strict and ambitious timeline that aims to destroy the lethal stockpile by mid-2014.
The Hague-based group said such declarations by member states “provide the basis on which plans are devised for a systematic, total and verified destruction of declared chemical weapons and production facilities.”
Such declarations made to the organization remain confidential and no details of Syria’s program were released.
