Chemical weapons watchdog meets to OK Syria plan
The Hague: The global chemical weapons watchdog is meeting to approve a definitive plan for ridding Syria of its declared stockpile of toxic chemicals in just over six months.
The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons already has drawn up a timeline for the destruction of Syria`s poison gas and nerve agent program by mid-2014. Today`s meeting is expected to sign off on details of how exactly the unprecedented disarmament operation will happen.
Much of the plan already is known after different nations made public their offers of help to the mission.
The most toxic chemicals are to be destroyed on a US ship. Denmark and Norway are providing ships to transport the chemicals out of Syria and more than three dozen private companies have offered to destroy less toxic chemicals.
