Guess the Country

This from Claudia Rosett at Fox News.

The 68-year-old X, one of several individuals now under investigation in <country> for alleged involvement in Saddam Hussein’s Oil-for-Food scams, is well known for his role in the early 1990s as <country's> ambassador to the United Nations. What investigators have not so far highlighted is that during the period X is alleged to have come into commercial contact with Saddam’s regime, starting in December 2001, he was working not for the <country's> government, but as a special adviser to U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan.

Clue: it's not Cyprus!
