Iraqi President Saddam Hussein has called for an emergency session of parliament to discuss Friday's U-N resolution calling for Baghdad to disarm.
A report Sunday aired by Iraq state television did not say when the lawmakers would meet.
Meanwhile, Arab foreign ministers meeting in Cairo say they are confident Iraq will accept the U-N resolution -- which demands Baghdad prove it has no weapons of mass destruction and warns of serious consequences if it fails to comply. The United States has threatened military action.
Iraqi Foreign Minister Naji Sabri, who met with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak today (Sunday), said earlier that Baghdad has yet to make a decision.
However, sources within the 22-member Arab League have told V-O-A they expect Iraq to announce full acceptance of the unanimous U-N Security Council resolution sometime in the next few days.
The resolution passed by the 15-member Security Council gives Baghdad until Friday (November 15th) to accept the disarmament order, and another 23 days to make a full accounting of its weapons program. Official Iraqi press Sunday praised the world community for choosing diplomacy over war by adopting the resolution.
