    Background: Iraqi Vice-President Saddam Hussein arrived in Paris on Friday (5 September) to spend
    a week inspecting French missiles, arms and a nuclear power station. French hopes to
    sell Iraq a large package of arms, nuclear power stations, and a petro-chemical
    complex.

    Mr. Hussein, who was met at Orly airport by French Prime Minister Jacques
    Chirac, was due to spend the weekend in the south of France touring a nuclear
    power station and watching a flight demonstration of Mirage fighter-bombers and
    other aircraft.

    An official French statement said France was prepared to 'sell iraq our most
    sophisticated aircraft and missiles'. It said France was 'anxious to finalise
    talks' on the package deal.
