Council members will be briefed on Monday 17 April in closed consultations by the High-Level Coordinator Yuli M. Vorontsov on an issue arising out of the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait in 1990—the repatriation and return of Kuwaiti and third-country nationals or their remains. A statement to the press by the president of the Council is likely.
In March the quarterly report of the UN Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI) is due. Also the US is expected to report to the Council on the activities of the multinational force.
The Council is likely to welcome the formation of a new government in Iraq resulting from the December 2005 elections, or at least welcome the results of the elections if it takes longer for the government to be formed.
