  • Remove. Transport. Destroy: Achieving a Chemical Weapons-Free Libya

    1,953 views 7 months ago
    OPCW coordinates complex & agile international effort for a chemical weapons-free Libya.

    Libya asks OPCW and the international community on 3 February 2016 for assistance with destroying its remaining Category 2 chemical weapons from its former chemical weapons programme. These chemical materials are dual-use industrial chemicals, however, under the definition of the Chemical Weapons Convention they are Category 2 chemical weapons due to the purpose for which they had been acquired. The request is prompted by an eroding security environment, the condition of the storage tanks, and concerns about the chemical weapon pre-cursors falling into the hands of terrorists.

    This video features interviews from officials involved in the operation from 2016-2017 (titles provided reflect positions of interviewees during the operation). Show less
