In a letter to the United Nations, Iraq admitted that he would not be able to meet its obligations to destroy its chemical weapons.

The Muthanna complex includes, in the northwest of Baghdad, the remnants of rockets loaded with nerve gas “sarin” and other deadly nerve gases.

 

United Nations and the United States assert that this ammunition is decomposed and the insurgents will not be able to manufacture usable weapons.

In a letter to the Secretary-General of the United Nations Ban Ki-moon, the Iraqi ambassador to the United Nations, Mohammad Ali Hakim said that Sunni militants seized the compound on June 11, after they took the weapons from the soldiers guarding the site.

The Ambassador pointed out that the surveillance system in Muthanna showed the occurrence of “the looting of some equipments and tools” at the factory, which is located about 70 kilometers north-west of the Iraqi capital.
