367. 8/2/1990

UN Security Council Resolution 660, which demanded that Iraq ‘withdraw immediately and unconditionally’ from Kuwait, was passed 14-0-1 on August 2 [1990] with no real opposition (only Yemen, then occupying the rotating ‘Arab seat’ on the Security Council, abstained) and little delay.”
