Syria Chemical Weapons Inspections to Begin on Oct 1 – Watchdog
Experts from the world's chemical weapons watchdog will begin inspecting Syria's stockpile by Tuesday, October 1, according to a draft agreement.
The draft authorises the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) to investigate sites not declared by Damascus.
The text is due to be voted on at a meeting in The Hague later on Friday, the BBC informs.
If approved, the demands would become part of a UN Security Council draft resolution that would formalize a plan requiring President Bashar al-Assad to give up his chemical weapons by mid-2014.
The United States and Russia agreed Thursday on the language of the text, following weeks of tough negotiations over how to ensure Assad complies with the disarmament plan.
"The United States and Russia agreed Thursday on the language of the text, following weeks of tough negotiations over how to ensure Assad complies with the disarmament plan"-----Dear Novinite, the "tough negotiations" were,
mainly, "over how to ensure" the foreign military non-interference while the above plan realisation and "how to ensure" not Assad only but the "rebels" as well to comply with the disarmament plan. Feel the difference? No?
