Iraqi Ambassador in Moscow: USA May Use Chemical Weapons in Iraq

In the course of military action in Iraq, the USA may use chemical weapons, Iraqi Ambassador to Russia Abbas Khalaf said.

"If the American part starts loosing its soldiers, they will use all the means they have, including chemical weapons," the diplomat disclosed on Wednesday in his interview with journalists.

The Iraqi leadership does not intend to expand the war on the territories of the other countries, Abbas Khalaf stated.

"We are protecting our country and intend to fight on our territory," the Ambassador said. Meanwhile, he did not exclude, "that the war can be fought beyond the Iraqi borders, because over 1 bln Moslems are living all over the world." "In this case, it will be a holy war of mankind against Bush's evil deeds," the Iraqi diplomat said.
