A White House National Security Council spokeswoman said the United States believes it can meet the OPCW’s deadlines.

Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) Director-General Ahmet Uzumcu briefs jounalists on the progression in the disarmament of Syria's chemical arsenal and facilites on October 9, 2013 in The Hague. Uzumcu called for temporary ceasefires in Syria's raging civil war in order to meet tight disarmament deadlines. The OPCW has been charged with dismantling Syria's chemical arsenal and facilities by mid-2014 under the terms of a UN Security Council resolution drawn up after devastating nerve gas attacks in August.
