Acting under Chapter VII of the United Nations Charter, the Council commended the initiative of the Secretary-General to secure agreements from the Iraqi government on compliance with its obligations under relevant resolutions, and awaited their full implementation. The memorandum established a Special Group consisting of diplomats and members of the United Nations Special Commission (UNSCOM) and International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) for the inspection of weapons sites.[1]

The resolution then demanded that Iraq comply with its obligations and allow unconditional and unrestricted access to sites and persons by UNSCOM and IAEA, and that any violation would have severe consequences for the country.[2]
