Hi Vanza

 

I suggest the following:

 

Iraq should agree not to use any kind of weapon against another country.

 

or

 

Iraq should reject the use of weapons against any other country.

 

A lot depends on your precise meaning.  In my two suggestions, "Iraq" is doing the agreeing or rejecting.  However, in your sentence, it is possible you meant another organisation / group of countries (e.g. the UN) should make the agreement.  Is this what you meant?

 

The ambiguity comes from your use of the passive voice in "An agreement should be made..."  As a result, your sentence does not have a clear subject.

 

I hope that helps.
