(AP) The world's chemical weapons watchdog says Syria has sent it details of its poison gas and nerve agent program and a plan to destroy all facilities linked to the deadly arsenal.

The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons announced Sunday that Syria completed its declaration Thursday, as part of a strict timeline that aims to destroy the stockpile by mid-2014.

The Hague-based group says such declarations by member states "provide the basis on which plans are devised for a systematic, total and verified destruction of declared chemical weapons and production facilities."

No details of the declaration or destruction plan were released Sunday.

Syria already had given preliminary details to the OPCW and inspectors have visited most of the 23 sites Damascus declared and begun overseeing destruction work.
