RE: resolution formally introduced today

Thanks for the alert Gabriel.  I've just spoken to someone here at the UK
mission to the UN trying to get a copy of the draft text.  He said that
"Edith's way out of line.  You don't publicly circulate drafts."  He is

While looking for a draft on the FCO website I did come across something
that might be of interest to members of this list, especially to the

issue likely to pose major challenges for policy makers over the next five
years."  More details are here:

By the way, given Saddam's helpful rejection of this latest proposal
yesterday, it may be important for us to seek to explicitly distance our own
positions from his statements.  The context that I've been using in my
