Inspections of Syria's chemical arsenal to begin on 1 Oct
The draft decision of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons authorises the body to inspect 'any other site identified by a State Party as having been involved in the Syrian chemical weapons program, unless deemed unwarranted by the Director-General.'
The Hague: The global chemical weapons watchdog is calling for inspections of Syria's chemical arsenal to begin by Tuesday.
The draft decision of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons obtained by The Associated Press also authorises the body to inspect "any other site identified by a State Party as having been involved in the Syrian chemical weapons program, unless deemed unwarranted by the Director-General."
That goes beyond usual practise as the organisation only inspects sites that have been declared by member states.
The draft, being discussed by the organisation's executive council Friday night, calls for the destruction of all Syria's chemical weapons and equipment to be completed by "the first half of 2014."
