A new U.N. inspection team arrived in Baghdad with a clear message that sanctions will not be lifted unless Iraq complies with Security Council Gulf War resolutions. "The Special Commission decided to conduct a monitoring of Iraqi capability in different areas, including the missile area," said senior inspector Nikita Smidovitch, a Russian. The eight-member team was sent into Iraq by the U.N. Special Commission entrusted with dismantling its weapons program only hours after Baghdad was served with a warning at U.N. headquarters in New York.
