Official: March 'Critical' for Syria Chemical Operation

March will be a "critical" month for Syria if it is to maintain its timetable for dismantling its chemical weapons arsenal, the UN official tasked with overseeing the mission said on Wednesday, according to AFP.

"The month of March, as I informed the Security Council, is the critical month to look at continued progress towards the overall deadline," said Sigrid Kaag, special coordinator for a joint mission by the UN and the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) to disassemble the weapons.
