U.N. to Consider Lifting Sanctions on Iraq

The United States plans to present the U.N. Security Council with a draft resolution Friday calling for the immediate end to sanctions on Iraq. U.S. officials hope to transfer the administration of Iraq's oil contracts from the United Nations to an international advisory board. Concerns over U.N. weapons inspections could stall the process. NPR's Vicky O'Hara reports.
