Blix: 'Inconsistencies' in Iraqi declaration

Iraq’s weapons declaration contains ”inconsistencies” and leaves many questions unanswered, chief UN weapons inspector Hans Blix told the Security Council today.

“An opportunity was missed in the declaration to give us a lot of evidence,” he said after addressing the Council in New York.

Dr Blix said that in the biological area, a table which Iraq submitted previously was not included in the latest 12,000 page report.

“This table has been omitted from the current declaration and the reasons for the omission need to be explained,” Blix said.
