  • TEMPO Interactive, Jakarta:Indonesia supports the strengthening of the UN Weapons Inspection Team in Iraq, as proposed by France, Germany, and the Russian Federation. The spokesperson for the Foreign Affairs Ministry, Marty Natalegawa, made this announcement in Jakarta on Friday (14/2). He added that this was indicative of Indonesias desire for a peaceful solution to the Iraq situation through the UN. Improving the UN weapons inspection team means that more skilled personnel are necessary and member nations of the UN should give political, technical, and material assistance. Indonesia believes it is the UN Security Council that has to preside over allegations that Iraq has weapons of mass destruction. The council has the authority to provide security and international peace. However, Marty said, Indonesia has to obey the UN Security Council if war breaks out. (Zacharias WuragilTempo News Room)
