Dear all Proposal hasn't changed. Just misreported. >also it says that the new resolution proposes UNMOVIC and the IAEA checking >goods rather than the 661 committee, no specific mention of the goods review >list . Is this a mistake by PA or has the proposal changed There is still an Amber List (Goods Review List) of suspect dual-use goods (now apparently one composite list rather than the 1051 list, that pre-existing Wassenaar-thingy list and the additional list drawn up by the US last year). The point is that it is up to the UN agencies to determine whether an item in a contract is on the Amber List. If they say it is on the list (and this is supposed to be a neutral technical determination), then it goes to the Sanctions Committee and they get to put it on hold, or pass it or whatever. Not totally clear whether goods that were previously systematically put on hold will be on or off the Amber List. US had promised to spare generators and trucks, last spring. Don't know how the List affects the electricity sector... Hope the Voices gang gone off to Baghdad can clarify this stuff with UN staff (it's on their mission list).
