TOKYO, Jan 24 (Reuters) – The United States has evidence on

Iraq’s maintenance of weapons of mass destruction, which it will

reveal at an “appropriate time,” Washington’s top arms control

diplomat said on Friday.

John Bolton, U.S. Undersecretary of State, said Iraq had been

engaged in denial and deception since the Gulf War in 1991.

“We have very convincing evidence that Iraq maintains an

extensive programme for the production and weaponisation of

weapons of mass destruction,” Bolton told a news conference

during his third and last stop in a tour of Asia.

“That is information that we have, and I think that, at an

appropriate time and in an appropriate way, we will make the case

about Iraq’s violations,” Bolton said.
