BEIRUT/UNITED NATIONS, Feb 26 (Reuters) – Syria has agreed a
new timetable to remove its chemical weapons by late April after
failing to meet a deadline to ship out the arsenal earlier this
month, diplomats said on Wednesday.
Under a U.S.-Russian deal reached after a chemical weapons
attack killed hundreds of people around Damascus last year,
President Bashar al-Assad’s government should have handed over
1,300 tonnes of toxic chemicals by Feb. 5 for destruction
