Global Message


  • The Security Council reconfirmed that Iraq has been and remains in material breach of its international obligations and reminds Iraq that there will be serious consequences for any additional breach.

  • The onus is on Saddam Hussein. The Iraqi regime has one last chance to avoid conflict.

  • The new UN inspection mandate will test whether the Iraqi regime has made a strategic shift and decided to give up its weapons of mass destruction.

  • The goal is simple: to fully and finally end Iraq's illegal weapons programs. Any and all non-compliance by the regime will be very serious, and treated as such.

  • To avoid conflict, the international community must continue to stand together. Standing together, we will remove this common threat to the peace of the world.
