Ambassador Anwarul K.

Council members will then conduct their weekly review of the oil-for-food programme, which has been extended through 3 July with a view to changing the sanctions regime at that time.”Maybe at the end of tomorrow’s meeting I can tell you a little bit more about the political direction, or absence of it, which may come out of tomorrow’s meeting,” Ambassador Chowdhury said.Reporting on his meeting yesterday with Iraqi Ambassador Mohammed Al-Douri, the President said the two had discussed Baghdad’s response to the latest Council action concerning the country. Ambassador Chowdhury said the Iraqi Permanent Representative “reiterated that the oil production has been stopped, oil export has been stopped.” Asked what would happen at the end of the month, Ambassador Chowdhury replied, “Nothing is decided yet — this is early in the month so let’s see,” adding, “It will be a difficult and laborious process, that I can assure you.” read more
