Chemical Weapons inspectors visit 3 sites in Syria

TEHRAN (FNA)- International weapons inspectors in Syria have visited three sites so far across the country as part of the UN program to destroy the country’s chemical arms stockpile.

The UN has tasked the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) to rid Syria of its stockpile by mid-2014, RT reported.

Twenty-seven inspectors are expected to visit over 20 sites.

OPCW spokesman Michael Luhan said Thursday in The Hague that the first series of sites on the inspectors’ list are “relatively securely” within government-held territory.
