This is the text of Security Council Resolution 678, giving Iraq until Jan. 15 to withdraw from Kuwait or face possible military action by member states:

The Security Council,

Recalling and reaffirming its resolutions 660 (1990), 661 (1990), 662 (1990), 664 (1990), 665 (1990), 666 (1990), 667 (1990), 669 (1990), 670 (1990), 674 (1990), and 677 (1990).
