The world chemical weapons watchdog accepted the Nobel Peace Prize Tuesday in Oslo, where it was praised for positive developments in Syria.

“With this year’s prize, we prompt those states that have not acceded to the (Chemical Weapons) Convention to do so,” the chairman of the Norwegian Nobel Committee, Thorbjoern Jagland, said at the ceremony.
