About this product
- DescriptionThe Gulf War of 1990-91 saw a real danger that chemical or biological weapons might be used against coalition forces. This authoritative account details the doggedly persistent work of the United Nations Special Commission (UNSCOM) on Iraq which was charged with overseeing the destruction of Iraq's weapons of mass destruction and with establishing an ongoing verification and monitoring regime to ensure that Iraq did t reacquire such weapons. Diligent work by UNSCOM, based primarily on Iraqi declarations and on-site inspections, has gradually uncovered more and more of the scope of the Iraqi chemical and biological weapons programmes and established an ongoing monitoring and verification regime which includes an internationally agreed export-import regime. Vital lessons are drawn for international security and for the strengthening of the n-proliferation regimes for both chemical and biological weapons.
