Dr. Paul Walker interviewed on chemical weapons by Russian Television

On 31 October, Director of the Environmental Security and Sustainability programme, Paul Walker, was interviewed for the Russian television channel RT. In his interview, Dr. Walker defends the OPCW as a strong organization deserving of its Nobel Prize after over 20 years of hard work.

After being asked about the ease with which terrorist could create chemical or biological weapons, Walker claims that the weapons themselves are relatively easy to make — however, he highlights the limited number of deaths in the 1995 sarin gas attack by Aum Shinrikyo on the Japanese subway as an example of how these weapons are difficult for non-state actors to adequately disperse.
