UN weapons inspectors to visit Pak
Islamabad, April 22
The inspection will be first of its kind, with focus on enforcing the UN’s Chemical Weapon Convention (CWC) Treaty that binds its signatories to destroy their chemical weapons and open their sites to the UN inspectors to ensure that they are not producing chemical weapons.
Pakistan, being a signatory to the CWC Treaty signed in 1993, is bound to open its chemical-industry sites to the inspectors to show that it is not making chemical weapons. The treaty was enforced in 1994.
A UN team will conduct its first-ever inspection in Pakistan at the Fauji Jordon Fertiliser. Members of the team include a Mexican, a Swedish and a Pakistani.
