A particularly important new development was the accession of Libya to the CWC at the beginning of 2004. This accession, facilitated by more than a year of quiet bilateral endeavours by both the United States and the United Kingdom, brought into the realm of the Convention a country that had in the past been associated with sponsoring terrorism and that had acquired a CW stockpile. The Libyan accession demonstrated two things: that breakthrough in respect to CWC adherence can also be achieved in regions that have a negative track record in CW proliferation, provided that key actors persist in using their influence and offer assistance at the same time; and that participation in the CWC and adherence to the global ban on chemical weapons have become one of the yardsticks the international community uses when assessing state conduct.

But some of them will inevitably turn out to have properties that could make them candidates for the development of new chemical weapons. Similarly, work in genomics and proteomics will greatly facilitate the design of new drugs, but the same techniques could also be applied to the design of new CW agents. It would not be the first time in history that a compound discovered by entirely legitimate research activities was ‘‘siphoned off’’ into military development of next-generation warfare agents.
