I read an article today that stated the visit from the UN told Iraq if they didn’t follow the sanctions against Iran, they would be put BACK INTO chapter 7 plus sanctions…so they are NOT in chapter 7. Sanctions/Restrictions against any country, entity or individual can come about under different Chapters of the UN Charter. Chapter 7 provides the authority to deal with violations by force, whereas Chapter 6 requires resolution by peaceful means. If I remember right under Chapter 8 matters are resolved by local agencies. Matters can start off under one chapter and then be transferred to another as happened with the Kuwait missing persons.
