UN Security Council agrees to rid Syria of chemical weapons
2013-09-28 08:49:07 | (0 Comments)
The United Nations (UN) Security Council has unanimously adopted a binding resolution on ridding Syria of chemical weapons.
At a session in New York yesterday, the 15-member body backed the draft document agreed earlier by Russia and the United States.
The deal breaks a two-and-a-half year deadlock in the UN over Syria, where fighting between government forces and rebels rages on.
The vote came after the international chemical watchdog agreed on a plan to destroy Syria's stockpile by mid-2014.
