New York, NY – In response to recent reports proposing that Syria turn over its chemical weapons stockpile to the international community, to be destroyed, Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney (NY-12) issued the following statement:

“I strongly support the idea of safely removing and destroying all of Syria’s chemical weapons. This development hopefully provides a route to effectively and peacefully preclude the further use of these weapons against the people of Syria or her neighbors. I applaud the Obama administration for considering this idea."
