Russia calls on the Security Council to re-discuss the US invasion of Iraq


On the 20th anniversary of the US invasion of Iraq, Russia asked the UN Security Council to hold discussions on March 20.

The announcement was made on Saturday by the First Deputy Permanent Representative of Russia to the UN, Dmitry Polyansky.

“March 20 marks the 20th anniversary of the US invasion of Iraq, based on an outrageous lie in the Security Council, when the US Secretary of State, Colin Powell, shook a test tube in front of everyone, claiming that it was a sample of a lethal weapon found in Iraq,” he stated. Polyansky via Telegram.

"It is about the disastrous consequences of the invasion of Iraq, which affected the entire Middle East region," Polyansky explained.

We have decided to help the Americans celebrate this sad date, and we intend to raise this issue on March 20 during the Security Council consultations. This meeting will conclude, but then, at about 19:00 Moscow time, we will go to the press, ”Polyansky added.

On February 5, 2003, the US Secretary of State, Colin Powell, announced in the UN Security Council that he had received information confirming that the late Iraqi President, Saddam Hussein, had the technology to produce biological weapons and showed a test tube with white powder.

Many of the participants in the Security Council session came to the conclusion that this powder is a sample of a substance used in weapons of mass destruction manufactured in Iraq.

On March 20, 2003, the United States invaded Iraq without UN approval.

It turned out later that the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) misled the US authorities and no biological weapons were found in Iraq.

Powell said at the time that he showed a fake test tube to convince the world of what Washington wanted.
