Demolition of remaining Syria chemical arms sites to begin soon

UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) – The demolition of a dozen remaining chemical weapons production facilities in Syria is scheduled to begin later this month while work will continue on the verification of the government’s declarations, Australia’s U.N. envoy said on Wednesday.

“There are seven hangars and five underground tunnels, which need to be destroyed,” Ambassador Gary Quinlan, president of the U.N. Security Council this month, told reporters after a closed-door briefing by Sigrid Kaag, a U.N. special adviser on Syria’s chemical weapons program.
