Powell welcomes German support for lifting of sanctions on Iraq
Secretary of State Colin Powell has welcomed German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder's willingness to work with Washington to end United Nations (UN) sanctions against Iraq, reported the Washington File.
Germany's opinion on the sanctions, Schroeder said, is that they no longer have any meaning and should be lifted as soon as possible." Together we came to the conclusion that it makes sense to come together in New York at the United Nations headquarters and, if possible, to develop a unanimous position," he said. — (menareport.com)
