Iraqi Weapons Declaration
Last Saturday, the government of Iraq gave a declaration of its weapons programs to the United Nations. A U-N Security Council resolution ordered Iraq to report on its nuclear, biological, and chemical weapons programs by December eighth. The time limit was widely considered Iraq's final chance to prevent a military attack.
The Security Council also required Iraq to agree to U-N weapons inspections. The first U-N inspectors arrived in late November. U-N weapons inspections were started after Iraq's defeat in the nineteen-ninety-one Gulf War. Four years ago, inspectors left the country because they were not permitted to visit all the areas they wanted to examine.
The U-N resolution required Iraq to surrender any weapons of mass destruction. It called for serious measures if Iraq failed to do so. Iraq could be found in violation of the resolution if its weapons declaration is believed to include false information or not complete.
