20 May 2002 description

Week three proved to be an active and productive one for the Security Council. The Security Council adopted four resolutions while a total of 18 meetings were held. The week's highlight was the unanimous adoption of an important resolution on Iraq. Resolution 1409 (2002) approves the revision of sanctions on Iraq and extends the humanitarian programme for another 180 days. This Chapter VII resolution puts the sanctions against Iraq on a new footing by freeing up purely civilian trade while tightening restrictions on military and dual-use supplies.
