Angola Joins the Chemical Weapons Convention
Department of State Spokesperson
September 22, 2015
The United States is pleased to welcome Angola as the 192nd State Party to the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC). We support Angola’s efforts to strengthen the global prohibition against chemical weapons and we offer our technical experts to assist Angola with its national implementation of the treaty as needed.
Angola’s accession to the CWC brings the international community one step closer to achieving the goal of completely eliminating the scourge of chemical weapons. The United States urges the remaining countries not party to the CWC to join the Convention without further delay.
