                               RESOLUTION


 
   Expressing the sense of the House of Representatives that France, 
Germany, and Russia can initially best contribute to the reconstruction 
 of Iraq by the forgiveness of outstanding debt between both Iraq and 
             France, Iraq and Germany, and Iraq and Russia.

Whereas France, Germany, and Russia have expressed a willingness and interest in 
        assisting with the reconstruction of Iraq;
Whereas France and Germany previously encouraged debt relief as a matter of 
        assisting other nation states;
Whereas both France and Germany have previously contributed to debt relief in 
        the World Bank's program for heavily indebted poor countries;
Whereas France, Germany, and Russia have administered a system of liberal export 
        controls that allowed for the exportation of sensitive technologies to 
        Iraq;
Whereas France, Germany, and Russia possess a developed trade relationship with 
        Iraq; and
Whereas France, Germany, and Russia possess a mutual relationship of friendship 
        with the United States and, in this spirit, have offered to assist in 
        Iraq's reconstruction: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved, That it is the sense of the House of Representatives that 
France, Germany, and Russia--
            (1) should work with the World Bank, the European Union, 
        and other multinational organizations to build a debt 
        forgiveness program for Iraq to aid in matters concerning its 
        reconstruction;
            (2) work in conjunction with the United Nations to ensure 
        that other countries recognize their role in economically 
        supporting a terrorist regime in Iraq;
            (3) recognize the responsibility that France, Germany and 
        Russia bear for the transfer of technology to a terrorist 
        regime in Iraq;
            (4) work to build stronger internal export controls to 
        ensure that militarily valuable technology will no longer be 
        exported to terrorist regimes thus creating similar future 
        debts;
            (5) acknowledge the role that Iraq's current debt could 
        play in hindering its reconstruction;
            (6) educate their populace as to the importance of debt 
        forgiveness in assisting in the reconstruction of Iraq; and
            (7) create a governmentally administered debt forgiveness 
        program to assist Iraq in its reconstruction.
                                 <all>
