Iran elected as member of executive council of OPCW
Iran is elected as one of the members of the Executive Council of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons.
This came during the 26th annual conference of O-P-C-W member states held in the Hague. Iran now is a member of the council for a 2-year term. The executive council consists of 41 O-P-C-W member states that are elected by the Conference of the States Parties and rotate every two years. In recent years, the U-S and its allies have been pressuring member states in order to prevent Iran's membership in the council.
