Report of the Security Council

1 August 2002-31 July 2003





Introduction



In the past 12 months the trend towards a steady increase in the workload of the Security Council continued. There was an increase also in the already growing trend towards transparency.

Iraq figured prominently in the agenda from the summer and autumn of 2002 until the end of the period covered by the present report. The Security Council found a path of unanimity with the adoption of resolution 1441 (2002) and, in spite of divisions that emerged later over the course of action to be taken on Iraq, it managed to find that path again with the adoption of resolutions 1472 (2003), 1476 (2003) and 1483 (2003), and was thus able to work with a unity of purpose for the future of Iraq.

The Security Council did not, however, lose sight of other priority issues. Africa was, once again, a major priority. The Council continued to devote most of its efforts to the African region, including through debates, many of them in open meetings, on several conflict situations in the continent, such as those in Liberia, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Burundi, Somalia and the Central African Republic, and best exemplified its concern in the holding of two missions, to Central and West Africa, in June and July 2003. The Council had a strategic look at conflicts in Africa and considered the role of the Council missions and other United Nations mechanisms in promoting peace and security in the continent during a public meeting held in May.

The situation in the Middle East continued to be considered by the Security Council with a monthly periodicity, the major development being the publication of the Quartet’s road map in April 2003. Afghanistan was also the subject of debate every four to six weeks, sometimes with regard to specific issues (security in February 2003, drug trafficking in June 2003). Afghanistan will be the focus of a Council mission in the autumn of 2003.

On general issues, counter-terrorism remained a matter for the Council’s attention, mainly through the work of the Committee established pursuant to resolution 1373 (2001), but also through the political impulse received in open meetings of the Council devoted to the question. Coordination and exchange of information between that Committee and the Committee established pursuant to resolution 1267 (1999) continued to improve during the past 12 months.

Middle East


Israel/Palestine

The Security Council continued to consider the situation in the Middle East, including the Palestinian question, on a regular basis, in particular with monthly briefings by the Secretary-General, his Personal Representative and Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process, Terje Roed-Larsen, or senior Secretariat staff. In September 2002 the Quartet agreed that there was a need for a road map to achieve a permanent settlement of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the realization of the vision of two States, Israel and Palestine, living side by side within secure and recognized borders, as was affirmed in resolution 1397 (2002).

After a further increase in violence and terrorist acts, the Israeli reoccupation of Palestinian cities and restrictions placed on Palestinians and the resulting impact on their humanitarian situation, the Council held an open meeting on 24 September 2002 and adopted resolution 1435 (2002), in which it reiterated its demand for the complete cessation of all acts of violence. It demanded that Israel cease measures in and around Ramallah and withdraw its occupying forces from Palestinian cities and return them to positions held prior to September 2000. The Council called on the Palestinian Authority to meet its commitment to bring to justice those responsible for terrorist acts.

The Council was not able to agree on a draft resolution on 20 December, tabled following the death of several United Nations employees working in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip and the destruction of a World Food Programme warehouse.

The Council continued to follow the work of the Quartet, whose road map was officially handed over to the parties on 30 April 2003. In June 2003 the Council presidency reiterated the support for the road map and the Quartet’s efforts in a statement to the press. The Council considered the situation in the Middle East monthly, with regular reports from the Secretariat, the latest on 17 July 2003.

The Council also continued to renew the mandates of the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) and the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF) on a six-monthly basis. In southern Lebanon there were continuing violations of the Blue Line by both sides, about which the Council expressed great concern; it urged the parties to end those violations.

The Security Council continued to support a comprehensive and just settlement in the Middle East based on Council resolutions 242 (1967), 338 (1973) and 1397 (2002), the foundations of the Madrid Conference, the principle of land for peace, agreements previously reached by the parties and the initiative of Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah endorsed at the Beirut Arab League Summit.
