Syria chemicals removal ‘not before end-June’

Rome, January 16, 2014

The removal and destruction of the most dangerous agents in Syria's chemical weapons arsenal may not be completed until the end of June, the head of the U.N. chemicals watchdog said on Thursday.

Ahmet Uzumcu, who is in Rome to brief Italian authorities, told reporters the amount of chemicals that have reached a Syrian port so far was "not that high". – Reuters
