The new French draft resolution + 1051 lists

The latest French draft resolution (19 June) can be found at:

On a brief glance, there seems to be some watering down of
earlier French proposals (eg changing the time line for foreign investment
in Iraq from 1 month for the Secretary-General's recommendations in the
earlier draft para.5, to 3 months in this draft para.5). There are also
some positive proposals, such as opening up discussion on the possibility
of a link between deductions of oil revenues for the compensation fund and
the humanitarian needs of the Iraqi people (para.12 of the latest draft;
not in the equivalent para.16 of the earlier draft). There is also an
unsubstantiated mention of a "safety net" in para.14 of the new proposal.

Links to the earlier French draft and related material can be found at:


Links to the latest 1051 lists (June 2001) of dual use and generally
prohibited items can be found at:
That section also includes links to the 1051 lists of April 2000, so
comparisons can be made.

Comments on any of the above documents would be valuable for us all, I
think, to read.
