The global chemical weapons watchdog urged Syria to intensify efforts to get its stockpile of raw materials for poison gas and nerve agents to a port, so it can be shipped out of the country and destroyed.

The appeal was madetoday, a day after the first batch of toxic chemicals - believed to be precursors for mustard gas and sarin - was loaded onto a Danish cargo ship in the Syrian port of Latakia and shipped toward international waters.

Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons spokesman "Michael Luhan" said the Nobel Peace Prize-winning watchdog is "exhorting the Syrian government to intensify its efforts so we can conclude this critical part of this mission absolutely as fast as conditions allow".
