Syrian government said it will meet a final deadline of June 30 for destroying its chemical weapons stockpile .
Under a timetable set up by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, Syria was to have given up its entire stockpile of chemical weapons by today.
Last week, a U.S diplomat said Syria had only removed 4 percent of its most toxic chemicals so far. All should have been removed by Dec. 31 under the framework.
Russia said Tuesday that Syria is preparing a new schedule and will make further shipments soon.
OPCW spokesman "Michael Luhan" said his organization is awaiting news from Syria.
Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister "Faisal al-Mikdad" said Syria is still cooperating and plans to meet the June 30 deadline.
