Latakia, 24 April 2014- The OPCW-UN Joint Mission confirms delivery of a further shipment of chemical weapons material. Today’s operation brings the total of chemical material removed and destroyed in country to 92.5%.

“I welcome the significant progress of the last three weeks, and I strongly encourage the Syrian authorities to conclude the removal operations as part of their efforts to achieve the 30 June 2014 deadline. Particular thanks goes to Member States for their steadfast support,” said OPCW-UN Joint Mission Special Coordinator Sigrid Kaag.

In addition to the removal operations, the Syrian authorities have destroyed buildings, equipment and empty mustard gas containers, and decontaminated other containers in a number of chemical weapons storage and production sites. A majority of these sites are now closed.
