Russia to secure destroying Syrian chemical weapons
News   /   Syrian Crisis

“Itar-Tass” news agency quoted Russian deputy representative at the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons “Vasily Titushkin”, saying that " Russia is ready to provide security for Latakia and Syria's territorial waters during the operation to destroy the chemical weapons".

Russia has said it plans to provide vehicles and help transport chemical weapons to Latakia from sites elsewhere in Syria, and Foreign Minister “Sergei Lavrov” said the Russian navy was ready to escort ships removing the stockpile.

The chemicals will be destroyed on board a specially adapted U.S ship because they are too dangerous to import into any country. There is no agreement yet on where the ship will anchor while the work is carried out.
