Syria removed the last of its chemical weapons arsenal from its territory on Monday, completing a deal reached last September to rid the war-torn country of government-owned chemical weapons materials.

"With this last movement, the total of declared chemical weapons materials destroyed or removed from Syria has reached 100 percent," the UN-Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons Joint Mission said in a statement.

"The most operationally challenging task within the effort to eliminate the Syrian chemical weapons program has come to an end," said the statement.
