Yesterday, the world divided into two unequal camps, with supporters and opponents of the resolutions proposed by the United States and the United Kingdom on one side, and France and Germany, leaders of the new axis opposing American expansion in the Middle East, on the other.

Japan expressed its support yesterday for the new resolution on Iraq presented to the United Nations Security Council, which includes the possibility of using force to disarm Iraq.

Syria, the only Arab member of the Security Council, opposed the American-British project and said that Syria would vote against a second resolution on Iraq in the Security Council.

Syrian Vice President Abdul Halim Khaddam said on Tuesday that Syria would vote against the resolution. He told Reuters on the sidelines of the Non-Aligned Movement summit in Malaysia, “There is no justification for proposing any resolution. The inspectors are doing their job in implementing Resolution 1441.” He added, “Therefore, we do not agree with this project.” Khaddam was asked if Syria would vote against the resolution proposed by the United States and Britain. He said, “It is natural.”
