Russia Will Believe UN Inspectors Only if Weapons of Mass Destruction are Found in Iraq

Even if the American-British forces report that they have found weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, the final assessment of their origin can be given only by international inspectors, said Russian Minister of Foreign Affairs Igor Ivanov, as addressing the Federation Council (the upper house of the Russian parliament) on Wednesday.

"No other assessments can lead to a final conclusion. There is such an agreement within the framework of the UN Security Council," said Igor Ivanov.
