Force may be needed to make Iraq respect Kuwait's border, the emirate's U.N. envoy said in a newspaper interview Friday.

Mohammed Abu al-Hassan told the Al-Anbaa daily that Iraq had set up several border posts inside Kuwait's territory in a clear breach of the Persian Gulf war cease-fire agreement.The U.N. Iraq-Kuwait Observer Mission had submitted a strongly worded complaint to Iraq but had advised Kuwait to wait until a U.N. team finished its demarcation of the badly marked frontier in March, he said. "After that it be on the Iraqi forces to move these posts to where they should be."
