Upon a passed resolution by the UN Security Council, inspectors have full access to all sites they find to be important as part of the chemical weapon disarmament process in Syria. Inspectors began work on the ground today.
They will spend the next 30 days on a rigid schedule of inspecting all of Syria’s chemical weapons sites as reported by Voice of America.
All equipment used to make chemical weapons must be destroyed by November 1st and all of the weapons themselves must be accounted for and stockpiled by mid-2014. Should Syria violate any of the agreements, they risk a range of punishments than span from sanctions to military actions.
At the recent UN General Assembly meeting in New York, Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Moallem stated that the international community should strive for a nuclear-free zone throughout the entire Middle East Region. He also stated that his government would comply completely with the UN inspector’s process.
