At a meeting with Director General for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, Ahmet Ьzьmcь, Alexander Lukashenko confirms Belarus’ adherence to the international Chemical Weapons Convention

The President of Belarus particularly emphasised that the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons received the Nobel Peace Prize. “I believe that the organisation deserved this prize, because you and your organisation were probably the first to take such a big step to destroy chemical weapons. We have always collaborated and will keep co-operating with your organisation (our organisation, as we are its member state). We honour the Chemical Weapons Convention, and in this respect, you can count on our support and assistance,” said the Belarusian leader.

Belarus is interested in the organisation of a regional centre of the OPCW on Belarusian territory. “We are in favour of promoting the interests of the organisation on the territory of Belarus and would like to have a regional branch of the organisation in Belarus. If a positive decision is made, we will do our best to make sure that specialists working on the elimination and prohibition of chemical weapons feel comfortable here,” stated Mr. Lukashenko.

The President said that the OPCW never had claims to the operation of chemical and petrochemical companies of the country. “I assure you that the level of work of our enterprises will continue to be such, further on,” said the Belarusian leader.
In his turn, Ahmet Ьzьmcь praised the high level of interaction between the OPCW and Belarus. “Our organisation thanks Belarus for the assistance that your country provides us, including in destroying chemical weapons from Syria,” noted the OPCW Director General.

“Our main goal is to destroy all chemical weapons on our planet. We are not far from achieving this goal. About 82 percent of all chemical weapons which existed in the world have been already destroyed. All countries, members of the convention, have made a big contribution to the implementation of its provisions,” added Mr. Ьzьmcь.
