Syrian arsenal will be easier to diasarm than initially expected: U.S. and Russia Say Majority of Syrian Chemical Arsenal Is “Unweaponized" (
Both American and Russian officials have claimed that getting rid of the Syrian government’s stockpile of chemical weapons may not be as hard as previously thought. According to a report in the Washington Post, the “vast majority” of President Bashar Assad’s illicit arsenal of nerve agents is believed to consist of “unweaponized liquid precursors” that can be neutralized in approximately nine months time. The revelation came as Russian and American officials hammered out a draft deal that provides a framework for destroying Syria’s chemical weapons. The U.N. Security Council reviewed the draft on Thursday night and could vote on a resolution as early as Friday.
