(Worthy News) - The United Nations Security Council is expected to call on the international community to help Libya dispose of its last remaining chemical weapons stocks.
Citing the potential threat to international peace and security should the mostly precursor chemicals fall into the hands of extremists, a proposed Security Council resolution calls on the international community to assist in their destruction by providing transport out of the country, expertise and financing.
The resolution, to be voted on Friday, responds to Libya’s request that the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons help them dispose of the chemicals. [ Source ]
