>From the Finnish Television Text TV service Friday 9 May 2003 EU Commissioner: USA after Iraq's oil EU Commissioner Poul Nielson believes that the United States is trying to take control of Iraq's oil. According to him, it looks that the US is becoming a member of the Organization for Petroleum Exporting Countries, OPEC. Nielson, who is the European Commissioner of Development and Humanitarian Aid was speaking about the new draft resolution regarding Iraq submitted by the US and UK. The draft resolution would end the sanctions imposed 12 years ago and would put Iraqi oil revenues under US control for one year. Nielson does not believe that the US will withdraw its troops from Iraq soon. __________________________________ Do you Yahoo!? The New Yahoo! Search - Faster. Easier.
