THE HAGUE, Netherlands -- The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons says it has received an "initial declaration" from Syria outlining its weapons program.

Spokesman Michael Luhan told The Associated Press on Friday that the declaration is "being reviewed by our verification division."

Luhan says the organization will not release details of what is in the declaration.

The organization is looking at ways to fast-track moves to secure and destroy Syria's chemical weapons stockpiles and production facilities.
