Government of India has decided to offer a financial contribution of US $ 1 million to the Trust Fund set up at the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) at The Hague for use in the destruction of Syria’s chemical weapons and related facilities.
India would also offer the services of its experts to be used by the OPCW in the destruction verification activity as well as training slots for the personnel participating in the UN/OPCW mission for the destruction of Syria’s chemical weapons.
India is an original state party to the Chemical Weapons Convention and as a possessor state it has completed the destruction of its chemical weapons in accordance with the Convention.
India welcomes progress on the time-bound safeguarding and destruction of Syria’s chemical weapons and Syria’s accession to the Chemical Weapons Convention. India’s assistance to the OPCW is a concrete demonstration of India’s consistent position of support for the complete destruction and elimination of chemical weapons worldwide.
