Oslo: Norway said on Friday it would not be able to accommodate a request from the United States to help destroy Syria`s chemical arsenal on its soil, saying the schedule was too tight.
"With the understanding of the United States we have concluded that... it`s no longer appropriate to consider Norway as a site for the destruction (of the weapons)," Foreign Minister Boerge Brende said.
He said the decision was made based on the obligations laid out in the UN resolution foreseeing the destruction of the weapons.
