Parliamentary questions
12 July 2018
E-002296/2018
Answer given by HighRepresentative/Vice-President Mogherini

The supervision of the destruction of chemical weapons is the responsibility of the Organisation for the Prohibition of the Chemical Weapons (OPCW).

The European Union (EU) has supported the destruction of the Syrian chemical stockpiles, by contributing to a Trust Fund established by the OPCW. It has also contributed to the work of verification and to the Fact Finding Missions of the OPCW as well as the Joint Investigation Mechanism (UN-OPCW) in Syria.

According to OPCW, the dismantling of the Syrian chemical program is far from being complete. The EU supports the work of the OPCW's Fact Finding Mission to continue examining reports on the use of chemical weapons and of the Declaration Assessment Team to continue examining the gaps and discrepancies of Syrian declarations until it is satisfied that Syria's chemical weapons programme is irreversibly dismantled.
