With its deadline closing in, Syria has significantly sped up the rate at which its been handing over chemical weapons for destruction, having now delivered 86.5 percent of its declared stockpile to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW). Though Syrias deadline is this Sunday, its been quickly speeding toward it, bringing the delivery total up from around a quarter of its declared stockpile in early March to 65 percent just a week ago. We hope that the remaining two or three consignments are delivered quickly to permit destruction operations to get underway in time to meet the mid-year deadline for destroying Syria’s chemical weapons. Despite its progress in removing weapons, there are signs that chemical weapons are still in use within Syria.
