  Future Iraq plan gets UN backing
Updated 09 June 2004, 07.52
The UN security council have supported a US and UK plan
The United Nations Security Council has voted to get behind a plan from the US and the UK for the future of Iraq.

The support of the UN is important as a temporary Iraqi-led government is due to take control of the country from a US-led group at the end of June.

The plan will let the new government have some say in missions carried out by foreign soldiers in Iraq.

The plan, called a resolution, explains some of the rules about what the new government is allowed to do.

Who controls foreign soldiers is a big issue
It's the first time all 15 members of the UN security council have agreed on something to do with Iraq.

The government that takes over at the end of the month will be in control of Iraq until January 2005.

Then elections will be held to choose a group of people - called a national assembly - who will choose the members of another temporary government.

They will help make the rules for elections in Iraq no later than by December 2005 which will let the Iraqi people vote for their own politicians, just like in the UK.
