EU lauds destruction of Russia’s last batch of chemical weapons

The European Union praises Russia’s completing work to destroy all the chemical weapons possessed by the country as a major move towards achieving the goals of the Chemical Weapons Convention, says a statement of the EU External Action Service circulated in Brussels on Thursday, TASS reports.

"This accomplishment by the competent Russian authorities, the OPCW [the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons] and contributing States Parties is an important step towards the achievement of the goals of the Chemical Weapons Convention," said the statement.

"The remaining stockpiles of chemical weapons elsewhere in the world should be eliminated at the earliest possible date, thus bringing the goal of a world free of chemical weapons closer," the statement added.
