Resolution 1154


Passed on 2 March 1998 by the UN Security Council at the apogee of an Iraqi-U.S. crisis, this resolution refers to Security Council Resolution 687 of 1991, which imposed economic sanctions and an arms inspection regime on Iraq at the end of the Gulf War of 1991 and endorses a recent "memorandum of understanding" between Iraq and the United Nations, which provided for International Atomic Energy Agency staff to inspect "presidential sites" in Iraq. The resolution urges that Iraq respect its "obligation" to accord immediate, unconditional, and unrestricted access to UN inspectors, and declares that "any violation would have the severest consequences for Iraq." The Council "notes that by its failure so far to comply with its relevant obligations Iraq has delayed the moment when the Council can" make a decision "to lift sanctions, which it reaffirms its intention to do."

Learn more about citation styles

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
