Practice Relating to Rule 74. Chemical Weapons
In an article published in a military review, a member of the Kuwaiti armed forces stated that, during war, belligerents must
respect restrictions and limits provided for in international conventions, such as restrictions of the use of some weapons, and prohibition of using others, e.g. chemical … weapons … This is in application of well-established principles in war, such as considerations of military honour and humanitarian considerations.
At the First Conference of States Parties to the Chemical Weapons Convention in 1997, Kuwait expressed support for the goals of the 1993 Chemical Weapons Convention and stated its full commitment to the provisions in the Convention and promised full cooperation with the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons.
