NPR's Tom Gjelten reports from the U-N that officials are still working out the exact details of how the renewed Iraqi arms inspections are to be carried out. While all Security Council members have expressed general support for the agreement that Secretary-General Kofi Annan brought back from Baghdad this week, the U-S and Britain remain skeptical, pending a review of the final details. Both Britain and the U-S would like to see the agreement followed by a new Security Council resolution threatening severe consequences for Iraq should the agreement once again be violated by Saddam Hussein, but it remains uncertain whether Russia and China would endorse such a step.
