Syria to Chair UN Disarmament Forum on Chemical and Nuclear Weapons (UN Watch)
Beginning on May 28, Syria will chair the UN Conference on Disarmament, based in Geneva, that produced the treaty banning chemical weapons, despite accusations that it perpetrated yet another deadly chemical weapons attack.
“The Assad regime’s documented use of chemical weapons remains the most serious violation of the Chemical Weapons Convention in the treaty’s twenty-year history,” said Hillel Neuer, executive director of UN Watch.
