Sir Jeremy Greenstock: Iraq War was not about oil

The UK's former ambassador to the UN in the run up to the 2003 Iraq invasion, Sir Jeremy Greenstock, denies the speculation that oil had anything to do with the motivation for war.

Sir Jeremy also served as Britain's Permanent Representative to Iraq in the aftermath of the invasion and witnessed first-hand the initial reconstruction efforts in the country.
