The EU has taken part in all the discussions at the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) for the removal of 23 tanks (nearly 500 metric tonnes) of Category C chemical weapons from Libya, the remnants of the former Libyan chemical weapons programme.
The EU has offered financial assistance to the States involved in the operation to remove, transport and destroy the chemicals and it stands ready to further assist in the future should there be any need to.
This lot was supposed to be the last remnants of Libya’s former chemical weapons programme but the EU will continue to monitor the situation in case new undeclared stockpiles should later emerge.
The safe removal of the chemical weapons constitutes a positive and important development for the stability of Libya and it is further evidence of how important it is to have a stable and reliable government in Libya with which the international community can cooperate to tackle the many challenges the country is confronted with.
