UN SC Resolution 1154 (1998)

UN Security Council Resolution 1154 (1998)

"The Security Council, 

"Recalling all its previous relevant resolutions, which constitute the governing standard of
Iraqi compliance, 

"Determined to ensure immediate and full compliance by Iraq without conditions or
restrictions with its obligations under resolution 687 (1991) and the other relevant

"Reaffirming the commitment of all Member States to the sovereignty, territorial integrity
and political independence of Iraq, Kuwait and the neighbouring States, 

"Acting under Chapter VII of the Charter of the United Nations, 

"1. Commends the initiative by the Secretary-General to secure commitments from the
Government of Iraq on compliance with its obligations under the relevant resolutions, and
in this regard endorses the memorandum of understanding signed by the Deputy Prime
Minister of Iraq and the Secretary- General on 23 February 1998 (S/1998/166) and looks
forward to its early and full implementation; 

"2. Requests the Secretary-General to report to the Council as soon as possible with
regard to the finalization of procedures for Presidential sites in consultation with the
Executive Chairman of the United Nations Special Commission and the Director General
of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA); 

"3. Stresses that compliance by the Government of Iraq with its obligations, repeated
again in the memorandum of understanding, to accord immediate, unconditional and
unrestricted access to the Special Commission and the IAEA in conformity with the
relevant resolutions is necessary for the implementation of resolution 687 (1991), but that
any violation would have severest consequences for Iraq; 

"4. Reaffirms its intention to act in accordance with the relevant provisions of resolution
687 (1991) on the duration of the prohibitions referred to in that resolution and notes that
by its failure so far to comply with its relevant obligations Iraq has delayed the moment
when the Council can do so; 

"5. Decides, in accordance with its responsibility under the Charter, to remain actively
seized of the matter, in order to ensure implementation of this resolution, and to secure
peace and security in the area."
