BEIRUT — President Bashar Assad says Syria will start submitting data on its chemical weapons stockpile a month after signing the convention banning such weapons.
Assad says this is the "standard process" and his country will follow it.
He made the comment in an interview with Russia's Rossiya-24 TV. The full interview will be broadcast later today.
Assad also said that the process is "two-sided" and suggested it will only work if the U.S. halts its threats of military action against Syria.
