WORLD IN BRIEF : IRAQ : U.N. Plan to Allow Sale of Oil Rejected

Iraq rejected a draft U.N. resolution that would let it sell a limited amount of oil to buy food and medical supplies. “The draft resolution does not provide the financial resources, even at a minimal level, to meet the needs of our people,” the Iraqi News Agency quoted Prime Minister Sadoun Hammadi as saying. The draft would allow the sale of up to $1.6 billion worth of embargoed Iraqi oil over six months.
