The Iraqi deputy prime minister Tariq Aziz said on Saturday Iraq will let United Nations weapons inspectors return only under a comprehensive agreement that would prevent an attack by the US and lift the UN sanctions imposed after Iraq invaded Kuwait.

He said: "If there is a solution that maintains Iraq’s sovereignty, dignity and legitimate rights and prevents aggression, we are ready."

Meanwhile, West Virginia Congressman Nick Rahall, former US Senator from South Dakota James Abourezk and media critic Norman Solomon met with Tariq Aziz and other Iraqi government officials in Bagdhad over the weekend. Abourezk said it would be immoral for America to attack Iraq without provocation.

Guest:

  • Norman Solomon, in Baghdad. He just met with Iraqi Foreign Minister Tariq Aziz with U.S. Rep. Nick Rahall (D-W.Va.) and former senator James Abourezk from South Dakota. Solomon is the executive director of the Institute for Public Accuracy.
