UN Security Council Resolution 1762, Iraq

Published June 29, 2007

The UN Security Council passed resolution 1762 regarding Iraq on June 29, 2007. The resolution ended weapon inspectors' mandates in Iraq, specifically the United Nations Monitoring, Verification, and Inspection Commission (UNMOVIC) and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), which were searching for weapons of mass destruction, and asked Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to transfer remaining funds in the UNMOVIC escrow account to the Development Fund for Iraq.

In June 2007, UNMOVIC published a compendium of process of creating the commission, what inspectors learned about Iraq's weapons of mass destruction programs, and lessons learned from the process.
