Russia says Syria will ship chemical weapons


Russia has said its ally Syria will soon ship more chemical weapons abroad for destruction after the government of President Bashar al-Assad was accused of dragging its feet on disposing of the arms.

Syria has failed to meet its deadline to eliminate all chemical agents by next week, but Russia said the government  would be able to complete the removal by March 1.

“Literally yesterday the Syrians announced that the removal of a large shipment of chemical substances is planned in February. They are ready to complete this process by March 1,” Russian Deputy Foreign Minister, Gennady Gatilov, said according to the state-run Russian news agency RIA.

Moscow also said on Tuesday that the Syrian government would show up at a new round of peace talks next week, hoping to allay Western concerns over Assad’s commitment to negotiations which ended inconclusively in Geneva last week.

“We have no doubt that the government delegation will take part in the second round of international talks in Geneva,” Deputy Foreign Minister, Mikhail Bogdanov, told reporters before talks in Moscow between Russian officials and Syrian National Coalition chief Ahmed Jarba.
