Syria is believed to possess around 1,000 tons of chemical toxins, and has agreed to destroy them under a joint Russian-U.S. proposal designed to avert a U.S. strike on Syria.
“We have received part of the verification and we expect more,” an OPCW spokesman said.
A U.N. diplomat, speaking on condition of anonymity, confirmed the details had been submitted, saying: “It's quite long ... and being translated.”
