Lebanon Joins the CWC

On November 20, 2008 Lebanon deposited its instrument of accession to the Chemical Weapons Convention. The CWC will enter into force for Lebanon on Dec 20, 2008, 30 days after accession.

With the inclusion of Lebanon in the CWC only 10 states remain outside of the Convention. The Bahamas, the Dominican Republic, Israel and Myanmar have signed but not ratified the CWC and Angola, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, Egypt, Iraq, Somalia and the Syrian Arab Republic have neither signed nor ratified the CWC.
