The subcommittee heard testimony from Ambassador Pickering and Mr. Bolton on the role the United Nations should play in the Middle East following the Persian Gulf war. Issues raised during the hearing included the plight of the Kurdish refugees in northern Iraq fleeing persecution from the Iraqi government, peacekeeping in the gulf region, reconstruction and reparations to Kuwait, and cleaning up the environment from the ravages of war. Ambassador Pickering said armed security in the Kurdish refugee camps was less important than the presence of international forces in the region, in that Iraqi interference in the camps would result in an international incident. The ambassador refused to state when the U.S. and allied forces currently in Iraq in peacekeeping and security functions would withdraw and leave the region to international forces. close
