Progress on Chemical Weapons in Syria
November 20, 2013
Since the horrific use of chemical weapons (CW) in Syria in August, great progress in destroying CW stockpiles has occurred by utilizing the mechanisms afforded by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), and avoiding the threatened escalation of the military conflict by the U.S. and its allies. Complete and safe destruction of chemical weapons is challenged by the continued conventional conflict that has claimed over 100,000 lives and which is fueled by the massive influx of conventional arms by multiple outside powers. A Mideast Weapons of Mass Destruction-free zone embracing complete disarmament of regional chemical, biological and nuclear weapons is urgently needed as a key step for regional peace.
