Negotiations continued full-tilt within the U.N. Security Council chambers on Thursday. While France has commanded much attention for its antiwar stance, her neighbor to the west, Spain, has been a stalwart supporter of the U.S. position. That country is co-sponsoring a second resolution authorizing war in Iraq. Ana Palacio, the Spanish Minister of Foreign Affairs, joins Neal Conan to discuss her nation's position. Later, Philip Gourevitch of the New Yorker discusses his recent profile of U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan.

Guests:

Ana Palacio
*Spain's Minister of Foreign Affairs

Philip Gourevitch
*Staff Writer for The New Yorker magazine
*Profiled Kofi Annan in March 3, 2003 issue
