The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has called on the international community to destroy the Syrian regime’s 12 remaining chemical weapons production facilities and to fulfil its obligations in accordance with the decisions of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) and UN Security Council resolution number 2118.

During the OPCW’s ninth session, Saudi said it was not a 100 per cent sure if the Syrian regime had delivered its entire chemical weapons stockpile, calling on the fact-finding commission to continue its efforts to obtain the required information from the Syrian regime.

Saudi also reiterated the importance of the implementation of the Convention on the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons calling to ban all weapons of mass destruction and prevent their spread to make the Middle East a zone free of such munitions.

The Kingdom called on the international community to provide the necessary support in order to achieve this goal.
