ABSTRACT
The article presents the text of the United Nations (UN) Resolutions on the Iraqi occupation of Kuwait in 1990, presented between August and November of 1990. The resolutions condemn the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait, which began on August 2, 1990, as a breach of international security. In response to the invasion, the UN demands that Iraq withdraw from Kuwait immediately and begin negotiations. Economic sanctions against Iraq, beginning in August 1990, are outlined, including the prevention of international trade with Iraq and the withdrawal of foreign monetary aid. The resolutions, which represent policies of the UN written over several months, indicate that Iraq refused to withdraw from Kuwait despite international intervention. Obligations of UN member countries to uphold the resolutions, including sanctions against Iraq, are highlighted.
