#OPCW : ” EU has allocated over `12 Million Euros’ to help pay for Dismantling of Syria’s Weapons Programme”

#AceWorldNews says that the EU has allocated over 12 million euro to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons on Monday to help pay for the dismantling of Syria’s chemical weapons program, AFP said.

The funds had been pledged to the OPCW in December by EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton to help cover the 25-million to 30-million euro cost of destroying the chemical materials.

They were signed over to the OPCW by the EU’s Development Commissioner Andris Piebalgs.
