RE: Has Nelson Mandela condemned the sanctions on Iraq?

I've done an extensive search on the Internet. The best I managed was to
find this site:
If you search for "Mandela" twice, you find the following sentence in the
found paragraph:

"In addition, the White House is less than pleased with Mandela’s resistance
to US sanctions against both Iraq and Cuba."

Unfortunately, the writer has not referenced the fact, rendering this
evidence unusable. However, it does indicate that an even more extensive
search might eventually bring up a reuters or associated press article
containing a condemnation by Mandela of sanctions.

If Mandela condemned Iraqi sanctions, it might well have been before 1998,
making it very hard to find the original statement.

Has anyone on the list had any better luck?
