On 2 August 1990, Iraq invaded and annexed neighbouring Kuwait, declaring a comprehensive and eternal merger. This action was at once condemned by the United Nations Security Council as a breach of international peace and security (UNSC 1990a). The invasion of Kuwait by Iraq was also an immediate cause for concern to the United Nations Environment Programme (Nairobi) over the resulting destruction of the environment and disruption of social and economic structures (UNEP 1990).
