Global Message


  • The international community is speaking with one voice, and the United Nations is living up to its founding purpose.

  • Security Council nations worked hard to meet each others' concerns. Fifteen nations agreed on a strong, principled resolution that makes clear what the Iraqi regime must do to meet its obligations to the international community.

  • This resolution is the final test of Saddam's willingness to disarm and end his twenty-year quest for weapons of mass destruction.

  • 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 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 will be treated as such.
