Iraq Set for UN Talks

BAGHDAD -- Iraq said Sunday its food-for-oil talks with the United Nations would resume Monday but warned success depended on stopping the United States and Britain interfering in the negotiations.


Iraqi and UN negotiators wrapped up their third round of talks April 24 without an agreement. Iraq blamed the failure of the round on last-minute changes both the United States and Britain introduced to a draft agreement.


The two countries demanded extensive changes to the plan that would allow Iraqi oil back on the market for the first time in nearly six years.
