SUBJECT: GUIDANCE: UNSC PRESIDENTIAL STATEMENT ON IRAQ

REF: 09STATE130342

1. (U) This is an action request(paras 2 and 3).

2. (U) USUN is instructed to seek Council consensus towards a
UN Security Council Presidential Statement (PRST) on Iraq
containing the elements outlined in the non-paper in para 3.
USUN should keep Washington informed on the progress of
negotiations and seek further guidance as needed.

3. (U) Begin Non-paper:

--The Security Council welcomes the letter sent by the
Minister of Foreign Affairs of Iraq on 18 January 2010 which
reiterates that the Government of Iraq supports the
international non-proliferation regime and complies with
disarmament treaties and other relevant international
instruments and is committed to taking additional steps to
comply with non-proliferation and disarmament standards, and
has also committed to inform the Security Council, IAEA and
other relevant agencies on progress made towards implementing
those measures in accordance with the Government of Iraq,s
constitutional and legislative procedures and in compliance
with international norms.
--The Security Council warmly welcomes Iraq,s accession to
the Convention on the Prohibition of the Development,
Production, Stockpiling and Use of Chemical Weapons and on
their Destruction, becoming the 186th State party on 12
February 2009.
--The Security Council also welcomes that Iraq has signed the
Additional Protocol to the Comprehensive Safeguards Agreement
with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and that
the Additional Protocol is currently before Parliament for
ratification, as is the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban
Treaty. The Security Council further notes that, consistent
with Iraqi law, Iraq has agreed to apply the Additional
Protocol provisionally, pending its entry into force.
--Reaffirming the need to be assured of Iraq,s peaceful
intentions, the Security Council requests that the IAEA
inform the Council as soon as possible regarding the quality
of Iraq,s safeguards-related cooperation with the IAEA,
including whether Iraq is implementing provisionally the
Additional Protocol pending entry into force.
--Following such a determination by the IAEA, the Security
Council would be prepared to review, with a view towards
lifting, the restrictions in UNSCR 687 and 707 related to
weapons of mass destruction and civil nuclear activities.
End Non-paper.
