India’s Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) was on Friday elected external auditor of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), the government said.
 
The Conference of State Parties of the Hague-headquartered OPCW elected India’s CAG to the post for a three year term starting this year.

“India received overwhelming support ahead of others to be appointed as the External Auditor. India’s election was a recognition of its standing among the international community as well as the professionalism, high standards, experience globally and competitive bid by the CAG of India,” the ministry of external affairs said in a media release.

India was also selected as the member of the Executive Council of the OPCW representing Asia Group for another two-year term during the OPCW Conference of State Parties.
