These are very practical things, very important things.

I regret that I had to report the facts yesterday, which is that (unfettered access) had not been given, and we can't adequately do our jobs under these circumstances.

I think I can feel a new spirit and good cooperation from the Iraqi side.

The chemical and biological (weapons), there is no ambiguity. They are able to produce those weapons.

In light of this experience, that is, the absence of full cooperation by Iraq, it must regrettably be recorded again that the commission is not able to conduct the substantive disarmament work mandated to it by the Security Council and, thus, to give the council the assurances it requires with respect to Iraq's prohibited weapons programs.

Iraq's conduct ensured that no progress was able to be made in either the fields of disarmament or accounting for Iraq's prohibited weapons program.

I have seen no evidence of Iraq providing weapons of mass destruction to non-Iraqi terrorist groups.

Clear evidence that Iraq had taken advance actions at certain of the locations planned for inspection in order to defeat the purposes of inspection.

Like the Security Council, I take at face value their promise to offer full cooperation.
