UN Special Commission Teams Inspect Iraq's Nuclear, Chemical and Biological Weapons Capacity
The Security Council adopted a nine-part resolution on 3 April 1991, which called for a formal cease-fire after the Gulf conflict, provided Iraq agreed to all the terms and conditions of the resolutions. Under the terms of resolution 687 (1991), the Security Council established the United Nations Special Commission (UNSCOM), headed by Rolf Ekeus (Sweden) as its Executive Chairman. The Special Commission has been designated to inspect and render harmless, all of Iraq's nuclear, chemical and biological weapons programmes of mass destruction.
