As the Information and Press Department ofthe Russian Foreign Ministry reported, the Russian delegation is planningto raise a question about changing the procedure of price-fixing forcedupon the Committee and coming back to a former consensus-based procedure ofadvance approval of oil prices, as well as stopping the attempts tointroduce discriminating criteria for the purchasers of Iraqi oil, whichleads to short-circuiting humanitarian product supply contracts and poses adanger of a large-scale crisis of the UN humanitarian program as a whole. .
