Local mayors say no to Syrian chemicals transfer (ANSA) - San Ferdindando, January 20 - The mayors of the towns of San Ferdinando and Gioia Tauro on Monday said they will oppose the government's decision to use Gioia Tauro port to transfer Syrian chemical weapons between ships before they are destroyed in international waters at a planned meeting with ministers on Tuesday. Premier Enrico Letta organized the meeting with local and regional representatives in the area ahead of the United Nations-organized arms transfer, after local leaders expressed outrage over not being consulted before the government made its announcement last week.
