Libya’s last chemical weapons set for destruction

09 Sep 2016

(MENAFN) The final batch of chemical weapon materials from strife-torn Libya has arrived in Germany to be destroyed.

Libya destroyed its stockpiles of chemical weapons in 2014.
However, hazardous materials the country still held remained a cause for international concern.

“These chemical weapon precursors have not been weaponised and now they never will be by anyone,” the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons said.

The international chemical weapons watchdog will now verify the destruction of all the component materials at a specialist plant in Muenster, Germany.
