Sweden's Princess Victoria discusses status of anti-chemical weapons efforts
Üzümcü also expressed gratitude for Sweden's contribution toward the Syria Trust Fund, which is set aside for the elimination of Syrian chemical armaments and other stockpiles.
“Sweden has always played a significant role in the field of disarmament and continues to make an important contribution to OPCW activities," Üzümcü said.
Crown Princess Victoria also gave her congratulations to the organization's successful efforts in CWC implementation and the progress that has been made in Syria. Earlier in April, members of the Swedish Parliamentary Committee on Foreign Affairs met with OPCW officials on matters relating to the CWC's implementation and apparent chemical weapons use by Syria.
In March, several attacks involving chlorine gas were reported in the Idlib province of Syria, prompting a resolution from the United Nations Security Council and the OPCW's executive council on the continuation of the OPCW fact-finding mission work in the country.
