The Hague - The United Arab Emirates is taking part in The Twelfth Session of the Conference of the States Parties to the Chemical Weapons Convention (CSP-12) which will convene at the World Forum Convention Centre in The Hague, the Netherlands, from 6 to 9 November 2007.

The UAE delegation to the said conference is led by Ambassador of UAE to the Netherlands and Permanent Representative to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) Ali Thani Al Suwaidi. The delegation also comprises representatives of the UAE Ministries of Foreign Affairs, Defence, Interior as well as the UAE University.

The CWC Conference which is organized by OPCW will consider the international cooperation as well as the progress made so far on destroying stockpiles of chemical weapons by the countries that possess them. It is expected to urge all state parties to the CWC to deliver on their commitment to CWC and set up relevant national entities to execute its provisions.

It will also be seeking to secure the universal implementation of CWC. The Convention on Prohibition of the Development, Production, Stockpiling and Use of Chemical Weapons and on their Destruction was adopted at the Disarmament Conference in Geneva in 1992. The document came into force in 1997. 182 countries, out of 193 member countries of the United Nations, joined the Convention as of October 31, 2007. (Emirates News Agency, WAM)
