THE HAGUE/TIRANA -  After the Albanian decision on Friday to reject a U.S. request to host the destruction of Syria's chemical weapons, the OPCW
(Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons) adopted a plan that set out timelines for the destruction process, but did not name an alternative country.

US State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said the US expects that the timelines, set for no later than June 30th 2014 by the OPCW, would still be met.
