IRAQI NON-COMPLIANCE WITH UNSCR 1441
15 March 2003
Iraq has failed to comply fully with 14 previous UN resolutions related to WMD.
UNSCR 1441 is unambiguous:
"Recognising the threat Iraq's non-compliance with Council resolutions and proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and long-range missiles poses to international peace and security" (PP3)
"Decides that Iraq has been and remains in material breach of its obligations under relevant resolutions" (OP1).
"Decides... to afford Iraq, by this resolution, a final opportunity to comply with its disarmament obligations under relevant resolutions of the Council" (OP2).
"Decides that false statements or omissions in the declarations submitted by Iraq... and failure by Iraq at any time to comply with, and co-operate fully in the implementation of, this resolution shall constitute a further material breach of Iraq's obligations" (OP4)
