UNSC resolution restored Iraq’s full sovereignty

(article is dated 3/31/2012 - TODAY)

BAGHDAD / IraqiNews.com: The United Nations Security Council’s resolution to bring Iraq out of

Chapter VII of the UN Charter has restored Iraq’s full sovereignty over its money abroad, the

chairman of the parliamentary security and defense committee said on Tuesday.

“The resolution is an acknowledgement that Iraq no longer poses a threat to the security of other countries,”

Hadi al-Aameri told IraqiNews.com. UN Security Council Resolution 678 was the legal authorization for the Gulf

War, which was passed on 29 November 1990.

It gave Iraq an opportunity to withdraw from Kuwait by 15 January 1991 and authorized UN member states in cooperation with the government of Kuwait to use “all necessary means to uphold and implement” Chapter VII of the UN Charter, which authorizes the use of force to restore peace. Chapter VII of the United Nations Charter sets forth the powers of the UN Security Council to maintain peace. It allows the council to “determine the existence of any threat to the peace, breach of the peace, or act of aggression” and to take military and non-military action to “restore international peace and security.”

The United Nations Security Council on Monday unanimously voted to extend arrangements for depositing the proceeds from sales of petroleum, petroleum products and natural gas into the Development Fund for Iraq and to review all resolutions pertaining to Iraq from 1990. SS (S) 1

If they "restored Iraq’s full sovereignty over its money abroad," this doesn't mean they are out of Ch 7, right? Just one step closer to being completely out of Ch 7. This is good news, but I want the whole thing:) Am I reading correctly?

Think, haven't seen you in a while, I'm not sure about this article, it looks like a recycled one, they say Tuesday on it, thanks for the post.

But now I see why they want out so bad....it's the money abroad. I suspected that. Everything else that comes with the removal of chapt. 7 is an aside.

By resolution they have restored Iraq’s full sovereignty over its money abroad. However, they unanimously voted to extend arrangements for depositing the proceeds into the DFI. They are going to review all resolutions pertaining to Iraq from 1990. Chapter 7 is NOT lifted folks. We will have to wait for the results of the review.

On the other hand, the statement added that the Commission along with a delegation from the International Energy Agency discussed the oil situation in Iraq and its legislations in order to have a complete study on oil in Iraq. It is expected that the details of such visit will be published in Agency’s annual report on world energy estimations of 2012 next October. RM (TI)/SR 2492

Iraqi legislature calls on US to use its position in Security Council to exclude Iraq from UN Article 7

BAGHDAD / IraqiNews.com: An Iraqi Legislature has called Monday on the US Administration to play its role in the UN Security Council and the United Nations, to exclude Iraq from the UN Charter’s Article 7, imposing economic sancations against the country. ”It is the duty of the United States of America towards Iraq to strive seriously on the International level to exclude Iraq from the sanctions imposed by the UN Charter’s Article 7 and to cancel the UN Security Council’s Resolution 833 of 1993, that is not valid anymore against Iraq,” the Legislature of the White al-Iraqiya Bloc in the Iraqi Parliament, Aliya Nuseif said in a statement, copy of which was received by IraqiNews.com news agency. ”America is able to exploit its strong position in the Security Council and the United Nations to help Iraq in this respect, along with its call on France and Britain to link this issue with their investments in Iraq,” Nuseif said, adding that “it is the duty of the Iraqi government as well, to use its legislative and executive powers to mobilize the International Community to achieve this goal, especially that those States are linked by economic interests with Iraq, that it could gain their support in this purpose.” SKH (TP)/SR308

I had to lol at this one. It's our duty? Really?

Kuwait insisting on keeping Iraq under economic sanctions – legistlature

BAGHDAD / IraqiNews.com: The Legislature of the so-called “White Iraqiya” bloc in the Parliament has charged Kuwait on Saturday, with “insisting to keep Iraq under UN Charter’s Article 7, imposing economic sanctions against her country, under justification of he existence of lost Kuwaitis in Iraq. “It is regretful to see the UN Security Council, repeating its advice for Iraq to normalize its relations with Kuwait, especially in the field of searching for Kuwaitis lost in Iraq since 1990.The Security Council and the world know that no lost Kuwaitis or even remains of Kuwaitis exist in Iraq, especially after several visits by international committees, who confirmed the inaccuracy of the Kuwaiti claims,” Nuseif said in a statement on Saturday. “Kuwait insisted on keeping Iraq under the said UN Charter’s Article 7 and continued creating justifications to prevent Iraq’s exclusion from this article.We don’t know what kind of normalization the Security Council is talking about,” she commented. “What development of Iraqi-Kuwaiti relations would encourage Kuwait to stop its policy of animosity towards Iraq in all fields,” she asked. Iraq is under UN Charter’s Article 7, imposed on it after the entrance of its forces into Kuwait in 1990, allowing the use of power against Iraq, under charges that it “threatens the International security,” along with freezing huge amounts of its funds in the world banks, to pay compensations for those who were harmed by its invasion of Kuwait.
