Sen told to find the truth

New Delhi: India's Permanent Representative to the United Nations Nirupam Sen has been asked to meet Secretary General Kofi Annan and Paul Volcker, who headed the probe into the Iraqi oil deals, to find the truth, External Affairs Minister K. Natwar Singh said on Saturday.

``As Foreign Minister, I have spoken to our PR to UN half a dozen times (since the Volcker Committee report was made public). I have asked him ...please get an appointment with the Secretary General, to have an appointment with Paul Volcker and find out the truth and let us know,'' he told NDTV.

Mr. Singh said: ``If there is anything wrong that we have done, we would like to correct it. If we have not done so, then we should convey our displeasure.''

The Minister said the Volcker report has been dismissed by the Foreign Minister of Russia, by the former Interior Minister of France, the Mayor of Milan and the South African Government.

``I am dismissing it here on behalf of the Congress party and as Foreign Minister of India. We consider this outrageous.'' — PTI
