Brazilian ambassador to Saudi Arabia rules out diplomatic relations with Iraq
A Brazilian diplomat ruled out Monday the restoration of diplomatic ties with Iraq if the latter showed no commitment to international resolutions.
In an interviewed with the Kuwait News Agency Monday, the Brazilian ambassador to Saudi Arabia, Louis Sergio Jama, said his country is supportive of the international resolutions linked to Baghdad and also rejected the Iraqi circumvention style over dealing with such resolutions.
He added that Brazil severed its relations with Iraq immediately after the United Nations issued its resolutions when Iraq invaded Kuwait in 1990.
Jama called on Iraq to implement U.N. resolutions, solve the problems concerning U.N. inspectors of weapons of mass destruction and release Kuwaiti and third country POWs and detainees. (Albawaba.com)
