United Nations acknowledged for the first time that Syria is "unlikely" to meet a December 31 deadline to move its most dangerous chemical arms out of the country.

The UN and the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons said "important progress" has been made on eliminating Syria's banned weapons, but called on President Bashar al-Assad's government to "intensify efforts" to meet internationally set deadlines.

The year-end deadline was the first key milestone under a UN Security Council-backed deal arranged by Russia and the United States that aims to wipe out all of Syria's chemical arms by the middle of 2014.
