United Nations to Discuss Iraq’s Chapter VII

The United Nations Security Council will hold a high-level event on 15 December on the subject of Iraq, which will be chaired by United States Vice President Joe Biden, and attended by Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, the US permanent representative to the United Nations announced today.

The event will be “an important opportunity for the international community to recognize the very real progress that Iraq has made both in terms of government formation, as well as the significant steps that have been taken to terminate its Chapter VII obligation,” Susan Rice the US Permanent Representative to the UN and the President of the Council for the month of December told reporters at UN Headquarters.

Iraqi leaders last month reached an agreement on the formation of a new Government after months of deadlock that followed the parliamentary elections in March.

Under the power-sharing deal for a new government, President Jalal Talabani was re-elected by the parliament, while Nouri al-Maliki retained his position as Prime Minister.
