UN Secretary General plans to offer the Security Council to take measures for the control of Syrian chemical weapons' stockpiles and chemical agents, and their destruction after receiving a report by the Security Council on the results of inspection of use of chemical weapons near Damascus, RIA Novosti reported.
"I consider the opportunity to urge the UN Security Council to demand immediate transfer of Syrian chemical weapons' stockpiles and chemical substances in such places in Syria, where they could be safely stored and disposed of," Ban Ki-moon said at a news conference in UN.
UN Secretary General also welcomed initiatives by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on the international control of chemical weapons in Syria.
Ban also reiterated his call for Syria to join the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons.
Talking about the preparation of proposals to the UN Security Council, he acknowledged that he has not yet received a report from the inspection site on the intended use of poisonous gas sarin near Damascus on August 21. The group of experts led by Swedish Professor Oke Selstrom collected samples and witnesses to compile a report , which will confirm or deny the fact of the use of chemical weapons in Syria.
