IRAQ - May 3 - US Seeks New Package Of Sanctions.
Secretary of state Powell tells a Senate subcommittee he is making
progress towards a new package of sanctions against Baghdad and hopes to
change the system when the UN reviews it in June. He says: "What
I've been working hard to do is to develop a common view and I
think we are having some success with it in the Perm Five", adding
that he expects "good support" from Arab allies. (Powell spoke
with Russian FM Igor Ivanov about the sanctions as part of consultations
with the other four permanent members of the UN Security Council).
