The United Nations Security Council has scheduled more consultations for Tuesday on a draft resolution concerning the post-war future of Iraq, the President of the 15-member body said today.
Ambassador Munir Akram of Pakistan told reporters after its closed-door session this afternoon that some "important changes have been made" to the draft resolution co-sponsored by Spain, United Kingdom and United States "which need to be studied."
He added that the Council has scheduled a meeting for tomorrow afternoon, "at which time I expect that there will be a fairly intensive discussion on various aspects of the text…It is an important resolution and therefore I expect that there will be important discussions after all Council members' governments have had an opportunity to study the text."
