[5 November 2002]
PRESS BRIEFING: 11AM TUESDAY 5 NOVEMBER 2002
Asked for an update on discussions to agree a new UN Security Council Resolution on Iraq, the PMOS said that discussions were continuing at the UN. As the Prime Minister had said yesterday, we were at or near the point of decision. Obviously we wanted the process to be concluded as soon as possible. Asked whether an announcement could be made this evening, the PMOS said he had no intention of getting into a discussion about timescales. That said, we hoped a decision would be reached shortly.
