UN to press Iraq over nuclear inspections
Wednesday 17 February 1993
Tim Trevan, a spokesman for the UN Special Commission overseeing the destruction of Iraq's main weapons systems, said inspection teams had not flown over the capital so far out of respect for Iraqi sensitivities. But 'we have the right to fly over Baghdad', he said. 'We will exercise that right when we have operational need to do so.'
UN inspectors have given the Iraqis notice they want to fly over two relatively small sites in Baghdad believed to contain equipment to design prototypes of nuclear ballistic missiles, Mr Trevan said. The sites were not included in Baghdad's disclosure of facilities involved in nuclear research, he said. The inspectors discovered the sites on their own, and have checked them on visits by car.
