Mr Fatchett also said the UN Security Council would discuss Saddam's latest clash with the United Nations Special Commission
If fully implemented, this would allow the United Nations Special Commission
to fulfill its mission to find and destroy all of Iraq's chemical, biological and nuclear weapons; find and destroy the missiles to deliver those weapons; and to institute a system for long-term monitoring to make sure Iraq does not build more.
Saddam must refrain from interfering with the "independence and professionalism" of the United Nations Special Commission
The president also recounted how the United Nations Special Commission
, created after the 1991 Gulf War to find and destroy such Iraqi weapons, has met obstruction from Saddam's regime every step of the way.
A statement issued at the end of a six-hour parliament session said: "The National Assembly calls for stopping co-operation" with the United Nations Special Commission
, which is charged with overseeing the elimination of Iraq's weapons of mass destruction.
The head of the United Nations Special Commission
(UNSCOM), Mr Richard Butler, broke off talks and left Baghdad yesterday after his plan to accelerate the dismantling of Iraq's weapons of mass destruction was rejected.
The UN Security Council will allow the lifting of the sanctions only after Mr Butler's United Nations Special Commission
certifies that Iraq has no more illegal weapons.
