RESOLUTION 667 (1990)


Adopted by the Security Council at its 2940th meeting on
16 September 1990



The Security Council,


Reaffirming its resolutions 660 (1990), 661 (1990), 662 (1990), 664
(1990), 665 (1990) and 666 (1990),


Recalling the Vienna Conventions of 18 April 1961 on diplomatic
relations and of 24 April 1963 on consular relations, to both of which Iraq is
a party,


Considering that the decision of Iraq to order the closure of diplomatic
and consular missions in Kuwait and to withdraw the immunity and privileges of
these missions and their personnel is contrary to the decisions of the
Security Council, the international Conventions mentioned above and
international law,


Deeply concerned that Iraq, notwithstanding the decisions of the
Security Council and the provisons of the Conventions mentioned above, has
committed acts of violence against diplomatic missions and their personnel in
Kuwait,


Outraged at recent violations by Iraq of diplomatic premises in Kuwait
and at the abduction of personnel enjoying diplomatic immunity and foreign
nationals who were present in these premises,


Considering that the above actions by Iraq constitute aggressive acts
and a flagrant violation of its international obligations which strike at the
root of the conduct of international relations in accordance with the Charter
of the United Nations,


Recalling that Iraq is fully responsible for any use of violence against
foreign nationals or against any diplomatic or consular missions in Kuwait or
its personnel,


Determined to ensure respect or its decisions and or Article 25 of the
Charter of the United Nations,


Further considering that the grave nature of Iraq's actions, which
constitute a new escalation of its violations of international law, obliges
the Council not only to express its immediate reaction but also to consider
further concrete measures to ensure Iraq's compliance with the Council's
resolutions,


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


1. Strongly condemns aggressive acts perpetrated by Iraq against
diplomatic premises and personnel in Kuwait, including the abduction of
foreign nationals who were present in those premises;


2. Demands the immediate release of those foreign nationals as well as
all nationals mentioned in resolution 664 (1990);


3. Further demands that Iraq immediately and fully comply with its
international obligations under resolutions 660 (1990), 662 (1990) and 664
(1990) of the Security Council, the Vienna Conventions on diplomatic and
consular relations and international law.


4. Further demands that Iraq immediately protect the safety and
well-being of diplomatic and consular personnel and premises in Kuwait and in
Iraq and take no action to hinder the diplomatic and consular missions in the
performance of their functions, including access to their nationals and the
protection of their person and interests;


5. Reminds all States that they are obliged to observe strictly
resolutions 661 (1990), 662 (1990), 664 (1990), 665 (1990) and 666 (1990);


6. Decides to consult urgently to take further concrete measures as
soon as possible, under Chapter VII of the Charter, in response to Iraq's
continued violation of the Charter, of resolutions of the Council and of
international law.
