Security Council Resolution 598: Iraq-Islamic Republic of Iran


This Security Council Resolution calls on Iran and Iraq to observe an immediate ceasefire, discontinue all military actions and withdraw all forces to the internationally recognized boundaries. It requests the UN Secretary-General to dispatch a team of United Nations observers to verify, confirm and supervise the ceasefire and withdrawal of troops. It urges that prisoners of war be released and repatriated without delay after the cessation of active hostilities. On 17 July 1988, Iran notified the Secretary-General of its formal acceptance of resolution 598 (1987), expressing the need to save life and to establish justice and regional and international peace and security. The following day, Iraq also reaffirmed its agreement with the principles embodied in the resolution.
