UNITED NATIONS (AP) - The U.N. Security Council is calling on Syria to speed up the removal of the most harmful chemical agents from the country for destruction.

Under a timetable set up by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, Syria was to have given up its entire stockpile of chemical weapons by Wednesday.

A council statement issued Thursday after a briefing by Sigrid Kaag, the head of the mission charged with destroying Syria's chemical weapons, called on Syria "to expedite actions to meet its obligation to transport in a systematic and sufficiently accelerated manner all relevant chemicals to Latakia for removal from Syrian territory."
