"Now, more than ever, OPCW Member States must lend their unfaltering support to the Organisation, especially considering the recent instances of chemical weapons use. Costa Rica will continue to work tirelessly with the OPCW, an Organisation we consider to be an indispensable element of international peace and security; and will strive to ensure it has the necessary means to fulfil its mission, as well as to strengthen its mandate," Costa Rican Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Alejandro Solano Ortiz stated yesterday during his meeting with OPCW Director-General Ahmet Üzümcü.

Join the OPCW’s Spokesperson, Deepti Choubey, tomorrow for a live panel on the removal of Chemical Weapons from Libya:

The nonproliferation community achieved a quiet triumph last month with the effective international operation to secure and remove the last chemical weapons precursors that remained in Libya, eliminating the threat of them falling into the wrong hands.
Join the International Security Program as State Department officials, the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, and international partners discuss, for the first time, how this historic operation came together and played out amidst the ongoing Libyan conflict, why the Islamic State threat heightened the urgency of the removal effort, and what lessons this event holds for stopping chemical weapons use in Syria: https://www.csis.org/events/keeping-chemical-weapons-out-hands-terrorists
