Syria Misses Chemical Weapons Deadline

Latest deadline missed


Syria has failed to meet another key deadline for turning over its chemical weapons stockpile as part of an internationally brokered agreement.

Under a February 5 deadline set by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), Syria was to have given up its complete stockpile.

Syria has so far sent only two shipments of chemicals to be destroyed, amounting to less than five percent of its stockpile.
