Syria must move faster to remove its deadly chemical weapons stockpile and meet the June 30 deadline set for destroying its arsenal, the UN Security Council demanded Thursday.Less than five percent of the deadly stockpile has been removed from Syria, according to Washington, and Damascus has just missed another key deadline.The United States says only about four percent of Syria's declared arsenal has left the port of Latakia so far -- far less than the 700 tonnes the country was supposed to dispose of by the end of 2013 .The UN Security Council last year backed a US-Russian deal to destroy Syria's vast chemical arsenal after chemical attacks near Damascus that Washington blamed on the regime.
