Chapter Summary

There were, however, three instances where the author was more deeply involved than ?normal': the negotiations of the Memorandum of Understanding between the United Nations and Iraq in 1996 to implement Security Council Resolution 986 (1995) - the Oil-for-Food Programme (OFFP); the Secretary-General's negotiations with President Saddam Hussein in February 1998 for the purpose of getting access for the UN weapons inspectors to the President's palaces; and the aftermath of the attack on Iraq by the United States and the United Kingdom in March 2003. This chapter shares some of the author's personal experiences relating mainly to one of these events, the 1996 negotiations. The foremost objective is to reflect, based on those and other UN experiences, on the way in which the Security Council fulfils its mandate to maintain international peace and security.
