UN resolution on bigger Iraq role

The US and the UK have circulated a new draft resolution to United Nations Security Council members giving the UN a more heavyweight role in Iraq.
If adopted, the UN would take a larger role in its political process.

The existing UN mission in Iraq has had a low-key presence ever since a truck bomb devastated its headquarters in Baghdad in August 2003.

Diplomats say a vote on any resolution by 10 August, when the existing mandate for the UN's mission in Iraq expires.

American and British diplomats are keen to find a way to involve the UN more in Iraq's political future.

This draft resolution would extend and widen the mandate of the United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq, giving it a much more powerful advisory role.

It calls for a beefed-up mission that would work directly with the Iraqi government to promote reconciliation and help improve sectarian relations
