BEREA, Ky. (AP) - A longtime citizen activist who has helped usher a plan for destroying the chemical weapons stored in Kentucky is in Europe this week to help explore solutions to Syria's chemical weapons stockpile.
Craig Williams, director of the Kentucky Environmental Foundation's Chemical Weapons Project, was invited to join a delegation in The Hague, Netherlands. The group will be advising the international community on what to do about Syria's weapons.
The delegation has been convened by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons. The group is engaged in a joint mission with the United Nations in coordinating the disposal of Syria's weapons.
The OPCW says Williams' input is valued because he has helped facilitate citizen involvement in the chemical weapons destruction process at the Blue Grass Army Depot in Richmond.
