Syria is ready to sign the Chemical Weapons Convention, open its storage sites and declare its arsenal, Foreign Minister Walid al-Moallem said Tuesday, dpa reported.
"We are ready to fulfill our obligations in compliance with this treaty, including through the provision of information about our chemical weapons," al-Moallem said.
"We will open our storage sites and cease production. We are ready to open these facilities to Russia, other countries and the United Nations."
He said the decision was part of a Russian initiative. Syria is one of only five countries that have not signed the 1997 convention.
