Croatia considers role in destruction of Syrian chemical weapons

NATO member Croatia may allow the use of its Adriatic ports to load Syria's deadly chemicals onto a US ship for destruction offshore, Prime Minister Zoran Milanovic said on Tuesday.
"It is envisaged that they will be destroyed, probably in the Atlantic, under supervision of the US army. But they have to be loaded onto ships somewhere," the state news agency Hina quoted Milanovic as saying. No one from the government was available for immediate comment.
The chemicals are 'precursors', or chemical ingredients for weapons, Hina said.
"Consultations are under way in all of the Mediterranean," Milanovic said. "We are taking part in this and we want to hear the opinion of the Croatian public. We've seen what happened in Albania recently, so I am calling for a public debate."
