New UK draft resolution

Thanks Seb for sending around Greenstock's statement.

The UK has devised a new draft Security Council Resolution, dated 20 June
2001. Before I forget, it's at:

I've only skim read it, but it contains a number of changes from the
earlier drafts we've come across, and seems in some places to
accept provisions from the French draft - eg oil companies dealing with
Iraq would be selected by the Secretary-General and not chosed by the
Sanctions Committee (paragraph 8 of this draft, compared with para.7 in
the previous draft) - though the criteria would have to still be approved
by the Council. There's also a set of procedures for screening contracts,
which didn't seem to exist with earlier drafts.

Has anybody managed to get hold of the Russian draft that the UK is
vehemently abusing ("disturbing" according to Greenstock)? Is it different
from the old 22 May version that we know of already
( - ?
