Permanent Mission of Qatar
Our Ref.: 4/16/1-1-292
29 September 1998Sir,
I have pleasure in informing you that, owing to the misunderstanding which occurred at the forty-second session of the Agency's General Conference during the discussion of agenda item 19 on the "Implementation of United Nations Security Council resolutions relating to Iraq", the delegation of the State of Qatar was unable to participate in the vote on that item as it was not present during the voting.
In this connection, the delegation of the State of Qatar would like to confirm its position of support for the draft resolution on the "Implementation of United Nations Security Council resolutions relating to Iraq" contained in documents GC(42)/29 and Add. 1, and would like to request you to have that position reflected in the summary records and to circulate this letter to the Agency's Member States.
Accept, Sir, etc.,   (signed)
Saoud M. Al-Doossari
Acting Chargé d'affaires and
Alternate to the Resident Representative
Mr. M. ElBaradei
