Mr Major’s Comments on Saddam Hussein – 8 January 1993

Below is the text of Mr Major’s comments on Saddam Hussein, made on 8th January 1993.


We’ve told Saddam Hussein. He’s been told quite clearly by the Allies that we wish to ensure the safety of the no-fly zone. Firstly he must honour the no-fly zone. There must be no more flying in it. And secondly, he must remove the SAM missiles. That’s made clear to him, he knows that and set a time frame for it. I hope he will comply.
