The United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI) is an entity that was formed by the United Nations in Security Council Resolution 1500 on 14 August 2003.[1]


Its mandate operates through a Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary-General in Iraq. The first such representative was Sérgio Vieira de Mello who was killed in the Canal Hotel bombing on 19 August 2003.[2]

The current mandate was extended to 31 July 2014, under Resolution 2110 adopted on 24 July 2013. One of its tasks is to implement the International Compact with Iraq. The Special Representative of the Secretary-General Ashraf Qazi was appointed on 14 July 2004 and retired on 18 September 2007.[3]

Ad Melkert was Special Representative of the Secretary-General from 2009-2011, who was replaced by Martin Kobler.[4] The current Special Representative of the Secretary-General is Nickolay Mladenov.[5]
