(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - President Barack Obama says the elimination of Syria's declared chemical weapons stockpile marks an important achievement in the effort to stop the spread of weapons of mass destruction.

But he also says Syria now must follow through on its commitment to destroy its remaining declared chemical weapons production facilities.

The weapons were destroyed aboard the U.S. cargo vessel M-V Cape Ray in international waters.
