Syria sends watchdog chemical weapons inventory
THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) - Syria has sent the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons an "initial declaration" outlining its weapons program, the organization said Friday.
Spokesman Michael Luhan told The Associated Press that the declaration is "being reviewed by our verification division."
The organization will not release details of what is in the declaration.
The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, based in The Hague, polices a global treaty known as the Chemical Weapons Convention of 1993, which bars the development, production, stockpiling and use of chemical arms. The organization relies on a global network of more than a dozen top laboratories to analyze field samples.
