  UN not impressed with UK's tests for Iraq
Updated 13 March 2003, 07.18
Soldiers prepare in the desert
The UK is failing in its new attempt to get support for a second resolution on Iraq from the UN Security Council.

They have suggested Iraq be given six tests to prove it's getting rid of weapons.

And if it doesn't pass them, Iraq would face a US-led attack.

But Russia and France have rejected them.

The US is not impressed either.

They are impatient with all the talking going on.

What are the tests?

The six tests for Iraq are:

  • Making Saddam Hussein go on TV to say he has weapons of mass destruction and will give them up.
  • Allowing 30 Iraqi scientists to be interviewed outside Iraq
  • Giving up stock piles of biological and chemical material or coming up with documents to show what has happened to them
  • Promising to destroy banned missiles
  • Explaining their unmanned robotic drones which could be used to spray chemical weapons
  • Promising to give up all mobile bio-production labs.
The tests would not be part of the second resolution, but would be used as ways of judging whether Iraq has disarmed.

The UN will discuss them again on Thursday. If they accept them, the 17 March deadline to disarm could be extended.
