By its resolution 687 of 3 April 1991, the United Nations Security Council established the terms and conditions for the formal cease-fire between

Iraq
and the coalition of Member States co-operating with Kuwait. Section C of this resolution called for the elimination, under international supervision, of Iraq's weapons of mass destruction and ballistic missiles with a range greater than 150 kilometres (km), together with related items and production facilities. It also called for measures to ensure that the acquisition and production of prohibited items were not resumed. The United Nations Special Commission (UNSCOM) was set up to implement the non-nuclear provisions of the resolution and to assist the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in the nuclear areas. The precise terms are laid out in paragraphs 7 to 13 of the resolution.



The United Nations Monitoring, Verification and Inspection Commission (UNMOVIC) was created through the adoption of Security Council resolution 1284 of 17 December 1999. UNMOVIC was to replace the former UN Special Commission ( UNSCOM ) and continue with the latter痴 mandate to disarm Iraq of its weapons of mass destruction (chemical, biological weapons and missiles with a range of more than 150 km), and to operate a system of ongoing monitoring and verification to check Iraq痴 compliance with its obligations not to reacquire the same weapons prohibited to it by the Security Council.

UNSCOM's work was considered rigorous and thorough, but lack of cooperation from Baghdad caused it to drag on for years.

UNSCOM had been created using the INF Treaty experience as a template. This was not a surprise, given the fact that Englund served as UNSCOM's director of operations, with Brock as his principal operations officer.

Indeed, those who had long followed the issue knew that the ISG's conclusion couldn't possibly be true—because the U.N.

SZ: In terms of Iraq's military capabilities, we had no less than Scott Ritter, the chief weapons inspector for UNSCOM, the UN inspection regime, making the case that Iraq had achieved at least qualitative disarmament.
Some of the key resolutions include compliance with the Unscom and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in 1991, the 'oil for food' programme in 1995 and the Iraqi travel restrictions in 1997.
Any G-agent or V-agent stocks that Iraq concealed from UNSCOM inspections are likely to have deteriorated by now. Any botulinum toxin produced in 1989-90 would no longer be useful".
