Iraq Ignores Criticisms

BAGHDAD () -- Iraq on Wednesday ignored U.S. criticism of its food distribution plan, saying its experts and UN advisers would solve pending issues within days.

The official newspapers Jumhouriya, Thawra and al-Iraq all said Iraq and the United Nations were holding talks which they described as "very fruitful, professional and cordial."

There was no mention of U.S. objections to the plan for distributing supplies under the deal signed with the UN in May which allows sanctions-bound Iraq to sell limited amounts of oil.
