USA kan gi opp FN-mandat

Det er mulig at USA og de allierte i Sikkerhetsrådet vil la være å be om nytt mandat hvis det likevel vil bli stemt ned av et eller flere vetoland, melder CNN.

After being adamant for days that Bush would insist on an up-or-down vote at the Security Council, senior administration officials now say it is possible the United States and its council allies would not seek a vote.
One senior official said «it re2_kommentars our intention» to seek a vote but added: «The situation is very fluid.»
«Nothing is ruled in or out because so much is in play,» a second official said. This official, however, added that «obviously the president thinks it is important to have a vote.»
