The United States and Britain circulate a proposed resolution on Iraq to the U.N. Security Council that would transfer sovereignty to an interim Iraqi government on June 30 and give U.N. approval for the presence of U.S. and other foreign troops in Iraq. The draft proposal has received fairly positive responses from other members of the Council, though some are concerned that it would not give enough power the Iraqi interim government.
