DAMASCUS, Sept. 10 (Xinhua) -- Syria's Foreign Minister Walid al-Moallem said Tuesday that his country is ready to reveal the sites of its chemical weapons storages to representatives of Russia and the United Nations, according to the pan-Arab al- Mayadeen TV.
Al-Moallem made the remakes in Moscow exclusively to al- Mayadeen, in which he stressed his country's readiness to " completely cooperate" with Moscow to implement the latest Russian initiative to place Syria's chemical weapons under international supervision in exchange for sparing Syria a military strike by Washington.
"Our commitment to the Russian initiative aims to end the possession of all the chemical weapons," al-Moallem told the TV, adding that his country has an intention to join the treaty of Non- Proliferation of Chemical Weapons.
On Monday, Russia proposed a fresh initiative on Syrian crisis, stimulating to secure the chemical stockpiles of the Damascus government under international observation.
Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Moallem soon welcomes the Russian proposition.
Analysts say the move could be a first step toward a political solution to Syria's long-time crisis.
