Security Council Insists Iraq Comply

World IN BRIEF : UNITED NATIONS

December 23, 1997|From Times Wire Reports

With Iraq challenging the U.N. on arms inspections, the Security Council demanded that Baghdad allow weapons teams unconditional access to all suspected arms sites. The 15-member council, in a policy statement read at a formal meeting, said failure by Iraq to allow the U.N. Special Commission, in charge of scrapping Iraq's weapons of mass destruction, into any site was "unacceptable and a clear violation of the relevant resolutions." At the insistence of Russia, the U.S.-drafted statement no longer condemned Iraq for its actions.
