The international chemical weapons watchdog has inspected 14 out of more than 20 sites suspected of pertaining to Syria's chemical stockpile, AFP cited the OPCW as saying on Friday.

"The number of sites visited where inspection activities have been conducted has increased to 14," AFP quoted the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons as saying in a statement.

While the Syrian government has identified 20 sites of its chemical arsenal, the OPCW said its inspections affected "more than 20 sites," although the watchdog has not presented an exact number, according to AFP.
