Translation:Mamadou Tandja to Saddam Hussein (July 27, 2000)
I have the honour of referring to the agreement #381-NI 2000 concerning the supply of Uranium signed at Niamey on July 06 2000 between the government of Niger and the government of Iraq by their respective representative official delegates.
This supply equals 500 tonnes of pure uranium annually, to be delivered in 2 phases.
Having seen and inspected this matter, I approve it, and each of the parties, in full, by virtue of the powers conferred on me by the constitution of May 12 1966.
Consequently, I pray you consider this present letter like it is a formal instrument of approval by the Government of the Republic of Niger which finds itself rightfully engaged.
Please accept, Mr. President, the assurances of my highest consideration.
