Obama hails Syria arms destruction, vows vigilance

US President Barack Obama speaks in the Brady Press Briefing Room of the White House in Washington, DC, August 18, 2014US President Barack Obama hailed the completion Monday of the destruction of Syria’s chemical weapon stockpile, but said Washington would seek to ensure that Damascus fulfills all its commitments. “Today we mark an important achievement in our ongoing effort to counter the spread of weapons of mass destruction by eliminating Syria’s declared chemical weapons stockpile,” Obama said in a statement. After a global outcry over deadly chemical attacks in a Damascus suburb last year that may have killed as many as 1,400 people, President Bashar al-Assad’s regime agreed to an international plan to destroy its stockpile. “Going forward, we will watch closely to see that Syria fulfills its commitment to destroy its remaining declared chemical weapons production facilities,” Obama said.
