A civil airplane from Cairo to intentionally break the sanctions on Iraq
Egypt-Iraq, Politics, 10/3/2000
The Arab committee for lifting up the sanctions on Iraq in Cairo decided on sending a civil airplane to Baghdad during the week to break the imposed international sanctions on Iraq.
Ashraf El-Bayoumi, the head of the committee which comprises important Egyptian political and factional personalities said "the committee decided on sending an airplane to Baghdad with 150 important personalities from politicians, universities professors, artists, and intellectuals to violate the international siege on Iraq yet it carries no medical aids for it only aims at breaking the siege." By not carrying medical aid, the flight is intentionally set to defy any UN sanctions provisions on air flights to Iraq.
He added "we began important steps and we are about to hire an airplane from Egypt Air in days to head to Baghdad."
Mohammed Sami, the head of the delegation said "this trip does not abide by the international security council's resolutions."
