Syria submits partial chemical weapons list to OPCW



               After the meeting between the U.S and Russia last week about Syria, Syria submits part of the chemical weapons list to OPCW (Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons) followed the deadline set by the U.S and Russia during the meeting. According to the agreement set by the U.S and Russia, Syria still has time to submit the rest of chemicals weapons until the mid-2014. The next step is supposed to have a meeting to discuss plans about Syria’s chemical weapons on this Sunday, but the meeting has been delayed. The report from United Nation shows plenty of evidence that there was been using chemical weapons in Syria last month, but UN did not blame on neither Assad nor rebels. The United States and some western countries said Assad’s force attacked civilians. The Islamic State of Iraq was on the right side, it has a battle against other Syrian opposition forces. Late Thursday, they agreed to have a cease-fire.  


    People do not want wars,  so It is still a good start that Syria submits partial chemical weapons list to OPCW, regardless the list only contains part of the chemical weapons. When Russia and the United States set up the agreement on Syria, when the U.N found out evidence of using chemical weapons, Syria submits the chemical weapons list to OPCW. It shows that the power of corporation. It also shows that the world is working together as a whole to fight against chemical weapons. So far, it seems that Obama’s airstrike on destroying chemical weapons in Syria may not happen. But theres is still a chance even though the congress vote for no. People questioned that the U.S is not world police, so why the U.S should be involved in Syria’s civil war. Obama gave the answer saying that every one is equal, regardless nationality. The kids in Syria should have the same chance of living in a peaceful life. It is a pretty left thought. Now the UN give the evidence supported the U.S. “We walked about the cooperation which we both agreed to continue to provide moving, not only towards the adoption of the OPCW rules and regulations, but also a resolution that is firm and strong within the United Nations.” said by John Kerry. The U.S, UN and other countries are all working together, for the world’s peace.
