Finland supports chemical disarmament

Finland is prepared to support the destruction of Syria’s chemical weapons, Minister for Foreign Affairs Erkki Tuomioja stated when he spoke at the 40th Anniversary of the Finnish Institute for Verification of the Chemical Weapons Convention (VERIFIN) on 4 October.

For this purpose, Finland will make a financial contribution to the Trust Fund of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) and is willing to provide personnel and expertise for the efforts of the OPCW in Syria. The details of Finland’s support are being discussed with the OPCW and other countries providing support.
