STATEMENT BY THE PRESIDENT ON THE UNITED NATIONS SECURITY COUNCIL VOTE ON IRAQ
Tonight's unanimous vote of the United Nations Security Council sends the clearest possible message: Iraq must make good on its commitment to give the international weapons inspectors immediate, unconditional, and unrestricted access to any suspect site, any place, any time. All of the members of the Council agree that failure to do so will result in the severest consequences for Iraq.
In the days and weeks ahead, the inspectors will renew their mission to find and destroy Iraq's chemical, biological, and nuclear weapons' capacity and the missiles to deliver them. Iraq now has the responsibility to turn the commitment it has made into full compliance.
