New York, 13 August 2013

The Spokesperson has the following update on Syria:

Over the weekend, the investigation team led by Dr. Ake Sellström completed all the necessary logistical arrangements for its visit to Syria.

In the meantime, the High Representative for Disarmament Affairs, Angela Kane, has continued her consultations with the Government of Syria with a view to reaching agreement as soon as possible on the modalities essential for cooperation to ensure the proper, safe and efficient conduct of the Mission.

Once the Government of Syria confirms its acceptance of the modalities, the Mission will depart without delay.
