Al-Sahaf: Sanctions must be lifted off Baghdad for the Gulf's stability
Iraq, Politics, 3/6/2000
Iraqi Foreign Minister Mohammed Said al-Sahaf asserted that there will be neither security nor stability in the Gulf without lifting up the sanctions from Iraq, accusing USA of practicing a policy of collective extermination toward the Iraqi people and that it wants to turn Iraq into a US colony, which will never happen.
In press statements today al-Sahaf said Iraq welcomes any efforts to reform political relations among the Arab states on the right basis that will lead to achieving solidarity and creating a constructive atmosphere to overcome the hardships through which it passes.
He added, "We have been suffering since August, 1991 from daily aggression by the US and the British forces more specific to what are called 'no-fly zones.'"
