    MOSCOW, January 27 (RIA Novosti) - On Wednesday Russia and Switzerland will sign an agreement on cooperation in elimination of chemical weapons reserves in Russia, says a report of the Swiss embassy to the Russian Federation.

    "Switzerland envisages to allocate approximately 15mln Swiss francs (some $12mln) for this cooperation," reads the document.

    The agreement that will be signed in Moscow will regulate the framework conditions of such cooperation. The agreement is based on the Swiss Federal Parliament's decision on the encouragement of elimination of chemical weapons on a global scale, the report says.
