Unanimously Adopting Resolution 2107 (2013), Security Council Removes Iraq from Chapter VII Obligations over Return of Kuwaiti Nationals


Foreign Minister Hails Text as ‘Significant Step’ in Mending Bilateral Ties

The Security Council today decided to remove Iraq from its obligations under Chapter VII of the United Nations Charter concerning the return of Kuwaiti and third-State nationals or their remains and their property seized by Iraq’s former regime during its 1990 invasion of Kuwait.

Unanimously adopting resolution 2107 (2013), the 15-member body welcomed the Secretary-General’s report (document S/2013/357) on that subject and called on the Iraqi Government to give the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) any information available on the Kuwaiti and third-country nationals, and to facilitate the ICRC’s access to them and their remains, as well as the ICRC’s search for missing persons and property, including Kuwait’s national archives.

Further to the text, the Council asked the Special Representative of the Secretary-General and the Head of the United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI) to facilitate efforts towards that end.  It also asked the Secretary-General to consider charging his Deputy Special Representative at UNAMI covering political affairs to oversee Iraq-Kuwait issues.

Following the adoption, Hoshyar Zebar, Iraq’s Foreign Minister, said the text marked a turning point in Iraq’s relationship with the international community and a significant step in Iraq’s and Kuwait’s joint efforts to mend bilateral ties.  Further, it illustrated that Iraq had fulfilled all its obligations under Chapter VII of the Charter.

“All the negative aspects of the relationship between the countries have become part of the past.  We will focus on the present and the future, and what the brotherly relations can achieve to consolidate peace, security and stability in the region,” Mr. Zebar said.

A joint ministerial committee to maintain border markers had already been set up, he said.  Moving forward, they would work together to achieve sustainable development.  The international community’s support was needed to aid that process, as well as to help the two nations win the war on terrorism and defeat religious extremism.

The meeting began at 11:04 a.m. and ended at 11:21 a.m.


The full text of resolution 2107 (2013) reads as follows:

The Security Council,

Welcoming Iraq’s continued demonstration of its commitment to the full implementation of its outstanding obligations under the relevant Chapter VII resolutions, namely the continuation of payment of the outstanding amount of compensation administered by the United Nations Compensation Commission, and both Iraq and Kuwait’s efforts to advance regional stability, and welcoming also all the positive steps that have been taken by the Government of Iraq to fulfil resolution 833 (1993),

Welcoming further the ongoing cooperation between Iraq and Kuwait in the search for missing Kuwaiti and third-country nationals within the framework of the Tripartite Commission and its Technical Subcommittee under the auspices of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), and the positive efforts by the Government of Iraq regarding the return of all Kuwaiti and third-country nationals or their remains, and the return of Kuwaiti property,

Thanks Supergirl.....I woke up this morning thinking WOW that was some dream about Iraq regarding chapter 7.  Seeing your post and the comments of all these good people here gives me some hope that this actually happened  annd something is about to break soon.  Another monumental event in my mind, is if Adam truly shuts down the site tonight to new members.  This is what he said he was doing and I am watching excitedly. When that happens I will truly be a believer. (not that I ever doubted Adam)  I have friends and relatives who purchased dinar because I convinced them to, who believe this is just a ploy to get more memberships.  I don't believe for a second that this is Adam's style. GO RV

SO help me understand please.... I can be a little slow sometimes. But #6 says decides to remain seized. Doesn't that mean they decide not to release?

Seized of the matter mean to overtake the matter as in resolved. The issue has been completed or no longer an issue. I believe this was taken wrong by you. I might be wrong but I believe they man it's completed. Now why you got negs on that question is beyond me.

Look up the word seized and fit it in this context.

Peace and looking good for us.

Prayer helps... Can't hurt....
