Blix says he is not getting enough intelligence from U.S., U.K.
Chief U.N. weapons inspector Hans Blix said Friday that the United States and Britain were not giving him enough intelligence for his weapons search in Iraq.
"The most important thing that governments like the UK or the US could give us would be to tell us of sites where they are convinced that they keep some weapons of mass destruction. This is what we want to have," he told BBC Radio.
Asked if he was getting access to such intelligence information, Blix said: "Not very much, not yet. I hope we will and now that we are in full operation, I hope it will come."
"We get a lot of briefings about what they believe the Iraqis have. But what of course you really need to have is an indication of a place where things are stored -- if they know it." (Albawaba.com)
