India has called upon all states to destroy their chemical weapon stockpiles under the Convention against Chemical Weapons (CWC) within the shortest possible time to advance the cause of disarmament.

“Disarmament is a primary goal of the Convention and should remain the priority till the complete destruction of all chemical weapons,” external affairs SM Krishna said in United Nations on Monday at a high level meeting to celebrate 15 years of the convention.

The meeting was attended among others by the UN secretary general Ban ki-Moon and director general of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), Ahmet Uzumcu.
