      Syria Asks for International Aid to Destroy Chemical Weapons


      Syria has reportedly appealed for international aid in order to destroy its chemical weapons arsenal safely and correctly, according to the New Zealand Herald.

      Syrian deputy foreign minister Faisal Mekdad stated to reporters Monday that Syria needs armored vehicles and other equipment to move the chemicals for destruction, and warned that if such equipment was not provided, "it will be difficult if not impossible for Syria" to destroy the weapons.
