UNITED NATIONS, (Reuters) – The U.N. Security Council on Wednesday gave Iraq a green light to develop a civilian nuclear program, ending 19-year-old restrictions aimed at preventing the country from developing atomic weapons.

The 15-nation council also approved two other resolutions, one ending the controversial oil-for-food program and another calling for an end as of June 30, 2011 to all immunities protecting Baghdad from claims related to the period in which former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein was in power.
