Iran has not declared all its chemical weapons capabilities to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) in The Hague, in violation of an international non-proliferation convention, U.S. Ambassador Kenneth Ward told the organization on Thursday. He said Iran had failed to report a production facility for the filling of aerial bombs and maintains a program to obtain banned toxic munitions.
Ward cited the discovery of chemical-filled artillery projectiles, mortars and aerial bombs of Iranian origin as proof. “The United States is also concerned that Iran is also pursuing central nervous system-acting chemicals for offensive purposes,” he said.
