Consequences of the Iraqi occupation of and aggression against Kuwait
The item entitled “Iraqi aggression and the continued occupation of Kuwait in flagrant violation of the Charter of the United Nations” was included in the agenda of the forty-fifth session of the General Assembly, in 1990, at the request of Kuwait (A/45/233). At that session, the Assembly decided to retain the item on the agenda of its forty-fifth session (decision 45/455).
At its forty-sixth session, the General Assembly decided to retain the item on the agenda of that session under the new title “Consequences of the Iraqi occupation of and aggression against Kuwait” and to include it in the provisional agenda of its forty-seventh session (decision 46/475).
At its forty-seventh to fifty-eighth sessions, the General Assembly decided to defer consideration of the item and to include it in the provisional agenda of its subsequent session (decisions 47/477, 48/506, 49/503, 50/445, 51/434, 52/432, 53/427, 54/426, 55/432, 56/451, 57/520 and 58/514).
At its resumed fifty-eighth session, in July 2004, the General Assembly decided that, with great effect from the fifty-ninth session, this item should remain on the agenda for consideration upon notification by a Member State (resolution 58/316, annex, para. 4 (b)).
No advance documentation is expected.
