US Suggests Disposal of Chemical Weapons at Sea


The United States raised the possibility of carrying out the destruction of the Syrian chemical weapons stockpile by towing them out to sea and disposing of them there in answer to the difficulty of finding a country which is willing to take the task on within their own borders.

The OPCW (Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons) has said that although disposal is possible this way, similar to what the Japanese have done in the past, there was concern over the unprecedented amount that needed to be destroyed.
