PM: 'Let Saddam comply with the will of the UN'

PM: 'Let Saddam comply with the will of the UN'

The Prime Minister today (1 October) called for the Iraqi regime to comply with the 'will of the UN'.

"If at this moment having found the collective will to recognise the danger, we lose our collective will to deal with it, then we will destroy not the authority of America or Britain but of the United Nations itself."

"I know the worry over Iraq. People accept Saddam is bad. But they fear it's being done for the wrong motives. They fear us acting alone."

But Mr Blair added that:

"Sometimes and in particular dealing with a dictator, the only chance of peace is a readiness for war."
