Council for Foreign Relations to publish post-crisis plan for Iraq

07 March 2003
The Council for Foreign Relations (CFR), the New York-based think tank, is to publish next week a report on how the US should managed Iraq after the crisis, the council announced on 7 March.

The report has been written by a task force headed by former US Energy Secretary James Schlesinger and Thomas Pickering. It comprised senior economists and former US government officials including former IMF deputy managing director Stanley Fischer, now deputy chairman of Citibank, and Jeanne Kirkpatrick, US ambassador to the UN during the presidency of Ronald Reagan.

The report outlines how the US can work effectively with Iraqis, other governments, international organisations, and non-government organisations. It makes recommendations on humanitarian assistance, transitional governance, oil, economics and reconstruction, and regional security issues. A briefing about the report is to be held at the CFR head office in New York on the morning of 12 March.
