How will Syria's chemical weapons be destroyed?
Issued on: Modified:
The global chemical weapons watchdog has adopted a roadmap for the destruction of Syria's chemical weapons by mid-2014. However, where they will go to be destroyed remains unclear. Albania, a Nato member which dismantled its own arsenal in 2004, has refused to take on the task. No apparent country is equipped to jump in. RFI asked Samer Abboud, a Syrian expert and scholar in Philadelphia in the United States, whether weapon destruction should be the focus as violence continues to riddle the fragmented country.
