The first batch of 14 humanitarian supply contracts, worth over $7.62 million, that had been previously placed on hold by the Security Council's 661 sanctions committee, were approved last week following their re-assessment in accordance with paragraph 18 of the new procedures for the review and processing of contracts under Security Council resolution 1409 (2002). The full implementation of the new procedures began on 15 July.
Iraq has suffered an enduring humanitarian crisis from economic and trade sanctions that began in 1990 and were followed by the seven-month Gulf War. Possible U.S. military action against Iraq threatens to cause further deterioration of Iraq's vulnerable social infrastructures. Almost one-third of children in south and central Iraq suffer from malnutrition. Poor water and sanitation are contributing to chronic outbreaks of dysentery among children under the age of five.
Ramiro Lopes da Silva of Portugal arrived
in Iraq on 19 July and assumed the responsibilities of the United Nations
Humanitarian Coordinator in Iraq. Mr. Lopes da Silva was appointed
to the post by the Secretary-General on 31 May 2002 and succeeded Tun Myat,
who had served in that capacity since April 2000. The Office of the
Humanitarian Coordinator in Iraq is an integral part of the Office of the
Iraq Programme (OIP), with the Coordinator reporting to the Executive Director
of OIP, Benon V. Sevan.

In a letter dated 15 July 2002, addressed to the Chairman of the 661 Committee, H.E. Ole Peter Kolby (Norway), the Executive Director of the Iraq Programme, Mr. Benon V. Sevan, informed that the Office of the Iraq Programme has made all the necessary arrangements for the implementation of the revised procedures adopted by resolution 1409 (2002), effective Monday, 15 July 2002.
The United Nations has fully implemented new procedures to speed the delivery of humanitarian aid to Iraq, according to the head of the office running the oil-for-food programme, which allows Baghdad to use a portion of its petroleum revenues to purchase relief supplies.
There were five loadings from the two authorized terminals of Mina al-Bakr and Ceyhan under the United Nations oil-for-food programme in the week ending 5 July, totaling 6.3 million barrels of oil - down from the previous week's total of 8 million barrels. Of these, 3 loadings were from Mina al-Bakr, with 4.7 million barrels of oil and two loadings from Ceyhan, with 1.6 million barrels. The week's exports netted an estimated €152 million (euros) or $150 million in revenue. The average price of Iraqi crude oil was, approximately €24.20 or $23.80 per barrel.
Wrapping up two days of meetings with officials from Iraq aimed at ending the stalemate over the return of United Nations weapons inspectors, Secretary-General Kofi Annan today said some progress had been achieved - although he would have preferred more.
As high-level talks between the United Nations and Iraq opened today in Vienna, Secretary-General Kofi Annan voiced hope that the two-day meeting would produce concrete results concerning central issues, including the return of weapons inspectors to the country.
Arriving in Vienna today, United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan met with the key members of his delegation to discuss the next round of talks with Iraqi officials, which begin on Thursday in the Austrian capital.
The volume of Iraqi oil exports under the United Nations oil-for-food programme remained almost unchanged from the previous week's total, standing at 8 million barrels in the week ending 28 June. There were three loadings from Mina al-Bakr terminal, corresponding to 5.1 million barrels of oil, and two loadings from Ceyhan terminal, corresponding to 2.9 million barrels.
