Syria On Course To Meet Weapons Destruction Deadlines

NPR | Oct. 29, 2013 9:15 a.m.

Syria seems to be on course to meet its deadlines to give up its chemical weapons stockpile. It has made its declaration to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, and the OPCW has visited 21 of the 23 sites it needs to see. Two others are in contested areas. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry says all this shows that if there’s political will to do something in Syria, it is possible. He’s hoping the U.N. Security Council, which backed the chemical weapons agreement, can now work together to ease the humanitarian crisis in Syria.
