364. 8/2/1990

On August 2, 1990, “the very day of the [Iraqi] invasion [of Kuwait], the U.N. Security Council approved a resolution condemning the aggression and demanding ‘that Iraq withdraw immediately and unconditionally.’ Over the following days, the Security Council would vote unanimously to ban trade with Iraq; Arab leaders would agree to dispatch a pan-Arab force to defend Saudi Arabia; and the United States and the Soviet Union would demand that Iraqi forces quit Kuwait.”
