Dear Sheila Thanks for your message. In short, I don't know the answer to your query. My impression has been that the list has been revised in negotiations between Russia and the US, but I don't know by how much if at all. I guess we'll find out on Wednesday, if it is eventually passed then. By the way, the list of dual use items is not just the 150-page US list. It is actually in three parts: (a) the existing list developed by the UN technical bodies charged with disarming Iraq's nuclear, biological and chemical weapons and mid- to long-range missiles - ie UNMOVIC and IAEA; (b) the document from the US mission to the UN, containing 149 pages of items based on the Wassenaar Arrangement, a 1996 export control regime that evolved from Cold War controls; and (c) eight pages of assorted items that is annexed to the resolution. These lists sometimes contradict each other, by setting different standards for what is prohibited from export to Iraq. I imagine these problems will have been cleared up in the forthcoming resolution. Regards Glen.

Could you possibly clarify: Has the 150-page 'dual use' list presented by the US last Nov 27 been adopted now by the Security Council (ie. been accepted by Russia)? Presumably this is essentially the same list The Economist referred to last June as blocking any substantial technological rebuilding. > > With much appreciation. > Sheila Zurbrigg > CANESI - (Nova Scotia) > > > _______________________________________________ > Sent via the discussion list of the Campaign Against Sanctions on Iraq. > To unsubscribe, visit http://lists.casi.org.uk/mailman/listinfo/casi-discuss > To contact the list manager, email firstname.lastname@example.org > All postings are archived on CASI's website: http://www.casi.org.uk > _______________________________________________ Sent via the discussion list of the Campaign Against Sanctions on Iraq.
