A high level cooperating source has reported that in late at Saddam's behest a delegation of Iraqi officials was sent to meet with foreign export companies, including one that dealt with missiles. All it takes is one signature. Plans and advanced design work for new long-range missiles with ranges up to at least km - well beyond the km range limit imposed by the UN.
Programme making within the newsrooms was brought together to form a multimedia programme making department. British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said Mr Netanyahu's presentation on Iran's past nuclear weapons research underlined the "importance of keeping the Iran nuclear deal's constraints on Tehran's nuclear ambitions".
These documents indicate Iraqi interest in the transfer of technology for surface-to-surface missiles with a range of km probably No Dong and land-to-sea missiles with a range of km.
The stories are arranged by years, by themes, by witness accounts and by the correspondents reporting the stories. Ashtar described herself as "an activist who uses the media to express her ideas".
Conclusions I have covered a lot of ground today, much of it highly technical. Although we are resisting drawing conclusions in this first interim report, a number of things have become clearer already as a result of our investigation, among them: A new set design featuring a projected fictional newsroom backdrop was introduced, followed on 16 February by new programme titles to match those of BBC News A computer generated cut-glass sculpture of the BBC coat of arms was the centrepiece of the programme titles until the large scale corporate rebranding of news services in We have not yet found stocks of weapons, but we are not yet at the point where we can say definitively either that such weapon stocks do not exist or that they existed before the war and our only task is to find where they have gone.
