The international chemical weapons watchdog is meeting to approve a definitive plan for dismantling Syrian chemicals stockpile in just over six months.
The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons has drawn up a timeline for the destruction of Syria's gas and nerve materials program by mid-2014.
Tuesday's meeting is expected to sign off on details of how exactly the 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 U.S 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.
