NATO weapons ships in new bid to collect Syrian arms

NATO weapons ships in new bid to collect Syrian arms

Norwegian and Danish ships are due to set sail again from Cyprus in a fresh bid to collect Syria’s chemical arms.

Their first attempt was aborted after Syrian officials failed to deliver the toxic chemicals to the collection point in the Syrian port of Latakia.

Bad weather, shifting battle lines, and road closures were blamed for the missed 31 December deadline.

Removing the most toxic chemicals is the first step of a deal to eliminate Syria’s chemical arsenal by mid-2014.

The Scandinavian fleet will sail from the Cypriot port of Limassol on Friday, reports a BBC‘s correspondent, who is travelling on board the Norwegian frigate.

Under the international disarmament plan, US satellites and Chinese surveillance cameras are to track the progress of Russian armoured lorries as they carry the chemical weapons from 12 storage sites in Syria to Latakia, on Syria’s Mediterranean coast.

Danish and Norwegian cargo ships will then transport the chemicals to a port in Italy, where they will be loaded on to the US Maritime Administration vessel MV Cape Ray and taken out into international waters before being destroyed by hydrolysis.

The most dangerous ingredients include around 20 tonnes of the blister agent sulphur mustard.
The agreement on removing chemicals was brokered by the US and Russia after rockets filled with the nerve agent sarin were fired at three towns in the Ghouta agricultural belt around the capital Damascus on 21 August. Hundreds of people were killed in the attacks.

Party of Regions believes Svoboda’s torch marches are attempts to hide their deeds

The torch marches organized by nationalists from the Svoboda (Freedom) group in the center of the capital and other cities of Ukraine on January 1, 2014 again showed cynical attempts of young people throwing aside all restraint to hide their filthy deeds by patriotic slogans, the Party of Regions said, Interfax-Ukraine reports.
“Under the guise of the European future Ukrainian nationalists are carrying ghosts and nightmares of the past to our country. Torch marches, worship to a leader, storming parties, destruction of monuments, demolition of administrative and public buildings and lynching in the streets – everything was in the history of Europe in 1920-1930s. However, it’s occurred that such historic examples inspire the primitive opposition,” reads a report of the press service of the Party of Regions.
The press service said that the Party of Regions hopes that “international society won’t be indifferent to the attempts of certain political forces to revive fascism in Ukraine and make Nazi collaborators who swore Hitler heroes.”
“The Party of Regions asks authorities to assess the instigating and provoking actions of radical nationalists and not allow fascism spread in Ukraine.
The Party of Regions said that Nazism does not fit Ukraine and supporters of Nazism will be stopped.
“Those who will try to use violence will be punished under Ukrainian law,” the report said.
