North Korea's lead negotiator in nuclear talks with the US arrives in Washington

The two men blamed for the Novichok poisonings in Salisbury - Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov will be given travel bans and have their assets frozen in new sanctions imposed by the EU.
It's part of new mechanism to punish chemical weapons attacks.

Good progress made on adding dangerous chemicals, including that used in Salisbury, to the CWC Schedules. #ECM62 has recommended the proposal is accepted. States Parties now have 90 days to lodge any objections.

Today during the Executive Council meeting @OPCW the Joint Proposal by Canada, the US and the NL has been adopted by consensus. This is the first step on the way to put Novichok used in the #Skripal case on the list of prohibited chemicals of the Chemical Weapons Convention.

States now have 90 days to object to the decision. If none do these chemicals will be subject to declaration & verification under the #CWC. If an objection is raised the Conference of States Parties will engage. Canada calls on all states' support to make the world a safer place.

Today @OPCW Executive Council agreed a #Canada-US-NL proposal to add two families of highly toxic chemicals (incl the agent used in #Salisbury) to the #ChemicalWeaponsConvention Annex. Russia dissociated itself from consensus but did not break. Thanks to all states who supported!

#TodayInHistory in 1993 the #ChemicalWeapons Convention (CWC) opened for signature in Paris. Sixty-Four countries signed on the first day.
