Hans Blix

Asked if there was a response to Hans Blix’s recent comments regarding the war in Iraq being illegal and that the grounds for going to war had been spun, the PMOS replied that firstly, Mr. Blix at the time said that he also believed that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction (WMD). That was the generally accepted international consensus as reflected in the various announcements by the UN at the time. Secondly, there had been four separate inquiries, all of which came to the conclusion that the Government acted in good faith.

Asked if the inquiries had used that phrase, the PMOS said that that was what they meant.
