The United States said on Thursday expressed concern at Syrian government’s slow efforts to transport chemical weapons to the port of Latakia after a report said that less than 5 percent of the arsenal had been delivered and that work to destroy the weapons has fallen behind schedule.
“I do not know what the Syrian government's motives are -- if this is incompetence -- or why they are behind in delivering these materials,” Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel told reporters in the Polish capital, adding “they need to fix this.”
Meanwhile, White House spokesman Jay Carney told reporters traveling aboard Air Force One: “It is the Assad regime's responsibility to transport those chemicals to facilitate removal. We expect them to meet their obligation to do so.”
