Statement by the Director-General

10 February 2014

The movement of the third consignment of chemicals from Syria took place today. The Director-General, while noting this movement and the recent destruction of 93 percent of the Isopropanol, has expressed hope that these activities generate new momentum.

A significant effort is needed to ensure the chemicals that still remain in Syria are removed – in accordance with a concrete schedule and without further delays – consistent with the obligations of the Syrian Arab Republic deriving from the OPCW Executive Council decisions and UN Security Council Resolution 2118.
