U.N. council brings Iraq closer to end of 1990s sanctions

UNITED NATIONS | Thu Jun 27, 2013 11:16am EDT

UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - The U.N. Security Council brought Iraq one step closer on Thursday to ending United Nations sanctions imposed on Baghdad more than two decades ago after former President Saddam Hussein invaded Kuwait In 1990.

The 15-member council unanimously agreed that the issue of missing Kuwaiti people, property and archives should be dealt with under Chapter 6 of the U.N. Charter - which urges countries to peacefully resolve any conflicts - instead of Chapter 7.

Chapter 7 of the charter allows the Security Council to authorize actions ranging from sanctions to military intervention if states do not abide by council demands.

The move by the council is a significant political boost for Baghdad as it struggles to restore its international standing a decade after a U.S.-led invasion of Iraq toppled Saddam in 2003.

The Security Council resolution recognized "the importance of Iraq achieving international standing equal to that which it held prior to (1990)." U.S.-led troops drove Iraq out of Kuwait in the 1991 Gulf War.

The only issues linked to Iraq's invasion of Kuwait that remain under Chapter 7 are an arms embargo and Baghdad's payment of $52 billion in compensation to Kuwait, diplomats say. Iraq still owes $11 billion and has said it expects to pay by 2015.

There are still a range of Chapter 7 issues imposed on Baghdad after Saddam's ouster in 2003, diplomats say, including the freeze and return of Saddam-era assets and trade ban on stolen Iraqi cultural property.

U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has recommended that the U.N. political mission in Iraq should take responsibility for facilitating the search for missing Kuwaitis, or their remains, property and the country's national archives.

Here is what I got of value out of the Reuters statement:

 

The Security Council resolution recognized "the importance of Iraq achieving international standing equal to that which it held prior to (1990)." U.S.-led troops drove Iraq out of Kuwait in the 1991 Gulf War.


Now, what was the Dinar value prior to 1990???????

Obviously some do NOT understand how the UN sanctions work. What you can and can't do under Chapter VII vs. Chapter VI. Iraq has been returned it's "Sovereignty" in the International arena as the world (UN) sees it. This is a big day for Iraq! Yes, other things have to be dealt with, but not under 7, just between Kuwait and Iraq, (with over-site by the UN) NOT under sanction.

Thanks for the direct link, I watched the whole UN meeting, how could I miss this?

Did you not understand what they said in the meeting? Chapter 7 is done! period, moved to Chapter 6.

 

For how great this news it, yet no word from any mainstream news...

 

Why do you need to hear it from the "News" stations. Many just watched it live. It's DONE.
