Kuwait renews commitment to support Iraq against terrorism

Kuwait Representative to the United Nations on Tuesday renewed his country’s commitment to supporting the Iraqi people and government in their efforts to combat terrorism, and consolidate their national unity and territorial integrity.

“Kuwait, a robust partner of Iraq, stands with the country in its efforts to ensure its sovereignty and stamp out terrorism,” Mansour Al-Otaibi said at the UN Security Council session on the situation in Iraq.

He welcomed Iraqi President Barham Saleh as he visited Kuwait two days ago, saying the visit reflected the growing improvement of the neighborly ties and the shared desire to take the relationship to a new height.

Furthermore, Al-Otaibi welcomed the successful elections in Iraq in May as well as the subsequent peaceful transfer of power. However, he cautioned that the post-election phase could be a sensitive one.

He also spoke highly of the efforts, being made by Jan Kubis, the Special Representative of the Secretary-General and head of the United Nations Assistance Mission in Iraq (UNAMI), to resolve the problems relating to Iraq, including the retrieval of Kuwait’s missing persons and property. Source
