Sri Lanka welcomes framework agreement reached between Russia & USA on Syria


Sri Lanka welcomes the framework agreement reached between the Russian Federation and the USA on the time bound safeguarding and destruction of Syria’s chemical weapons, stockpiles, thereby seeking to resolve this issue through peaceful means, states the Ministry of External Affairs.

As a State Party to the Chemical Weapons Convention, Sri Lanka abhors the production, stockpiling and use of chemical weapons, and has advocated their complete destruction and elimination globally. In this context, Sri Lanka also welcomes the recent decision by Syria to accede to the Chemical Weapons Convention, the Ministry further said.
