Myanmar parliament agrees on seeking CWC membership

Yangon: Myanmar`s parliament Wednesday agreed on seeking membership of the Chemical Weapon Convention (CWC), a media report said.

Myanmar Deputy Foreign Minister U Tin Oo Lwin told the parliament`s ongoing session that the country`s intention to apply for CWC membership is a gesture of protection against chemical weapons not only in Asia but the global community, Xinhua reported.

A total of 190 states have given their consent to be bound by the CWC, while Myanmar and Israel have signed but not yet ratified the treaty.

Myanmar has been a signatory to the Biological Weapons Convention after the country submitted an application for membership at Geneva Dec 1, 2014.
