Annan Urges U.N. Backing

August 06, 2003|From Associated Press

UNITED NATIONS — Secretary-General Kofi Annan urged the U.N. Security Council on Tuesday to recognize Iraq's new governing council as a step toward the formation of a true government.

He also said the Security Council should establish a U.N. mission in Iraq, and he chided the members for failing to say anything about the Iraqi council after three of its members addressed the U.N. panel in July.

Spain had circulated a draft statement welcoming the Iraqi council as a step toward an internationally recognized government, but it was not adopted because of differing views among the Security Council nations.
