The United States congratulated on Thursday Libya for destroying its remaining chemical weapons stockpile.

The White House Spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said in a statement that the United States congratulates Libya for destroying the last remnants of its Gaddafi-era chemical weapons stockpile.

She also said that Syria must do the same and it urgent that Syria does it quickly, according to the White House statement.

Germany completed last week the destruction of components from the chemicals weapons programme of the deceased Libyan dictator Moammar Gaddafi.

Germany’s Foreign and Defence Ministries said on Friday that the chemicals had been destroyed “successfully and in an environmentally sustainable manner” by a state-owned specialist firm, GEKA, which is based in Munster, south of Hamburg, the report added.

The cost of destroying the chemicals was shared by Germany and the United States.
