Great Britain Hands Over Water-Supply System for Russian Plant

Great Britain has handed over to Russia a water-supply system for the plant for disposal of chemical weapons which is under construction in the Chelyabinsk Region in the Urals. The official ceremony of the transfer of the rights of ownership of this system took place at the Embassy of Great Britain in Moscow on Tuesday. Since 2000, Great Britain has been implementing a project aimed at supporting the construction of the main Russian plant for the disposal of chemical weapons.

As Ambassador of Great Britain in Moscow Sir Roderick Lyne said at the ceremony, his country has allocated 12 million pounds for disposing of chemical weapons in Russia. Under the agreement with London, the Parsons company of the USA is the main contractor of the project which is being implemented in the Urals.

In the British diplomat's opinion, the distinctions in the stands of Moscow and London on Iraq will not influence the implementation of the programme for disposal of Russian chemical weapons. It is an example of "very fruitful co-operation" between Great Britain, Russia and the USA and an example of the three countries' ambition to reduce the danger of the proliferation of mass destruction weapons, the Ambassador of Great Britain to Russia stated.
