Al-Otaibi praised Baghdad's serious desire to meet its international obligations

Kuwait calls for a new innovative approach to uncovering the fate of our martyrs and returning property from Iraq

Kuwait urged the United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI) to continue to carry out its mandate in the follow-up to the issue of prisoners and missing persons and to return property, including national archives, calling for a new innovative approach to ensure that these issues are pushed forward. 
This came in the speech of Kuwait, delivered by its Permanent Representative to the United Nations Ambassador Mansour Al-Otaibi at a Security Council session on Iraq. Al-Otaibi said that Kuwait continues its efforts to continue to reveal the fate of its martyrs, despite the diminishing chances of finding them alive, and appreciates the keenness of members of the Security Council for years to keep this humanitarian file on its agenda. The follow-up to Council members assessed the implementation of all the obligations set out in the relevant resolutions of the Security Council, especially those relating to the major remaining obligations that have not been resolved since the liberation of Kuwait in 1991.
He commended the efforts of UNMIK and the United Nations family in Iraq to build a promising future for Iraq, from the creation of conditions conducive to security and stability, to meeting humanitarian needs and to the provision of sustainable development. 
Al-Otaibi stressed the continued support system" rel="">support of Kuwait and its cooperation with the mission and the Qatari team in order to carry out their duties to the fullest extent. He referred to the international obligations and outstanding humanitarian issues relating to missing Kuwaiti nationals and property, including national archives. 
Al-Otaibi praised Iraq's keenness to fulfill all its remaining international obligations towards Kuwait as required. He pointed out that the discovery of the remains of 236 out of the 605 missing would not have been possible without Iraq's cooperation.
Al-Otaibi urged the UN Assistance Mission in Iraq to follow up and continue to implement its mandate regarding the follow-up of the issue of prisoners and missing persons and the return of property, including national archives, by resolution 2107/2013. The United Nations welcomed Kuwait's role in raising funds for humanitarian programs in Iraq, Kuwaiti nationals and third-country nationals and lost Kuwaiti property. In a speech at a UN Security Council session on Iraq, the head of the UN Assistance Mission for Iraq, Hennes Plassert, urged political actors to overcome internal fighting and allow compromises to prevail for the benefit of the Iraqi people. 
"It is time for leaders in Iraq to shift the focus from factional politics to investing in meeting the immediate needs of citizens," she said. "Despite the formation of the government, Iraq is still incomplete."
Noting some positive developments, including the budget allocations for the electricity sector in 2019, she said that this step reflects the government's efforts to improve the provision of basic services. However, funding for reconstruction in the liberated areas is much less than what is required, Oil revenues are subject to oil price volatility while corruption remains widespread and fighting is not easy. 
Although terrorist activities have decreased, the Da'ash organization continues to pose a security threat to the entire region as armed groups expand their economic and social reach, Palasert said. 
At the humanitarian level, Placert stressed that the United Nations aims to meet the needs of 1.75 million vulnerable Iraqis this year as the humanitarian response plan for 2019 seeks 700 million dollars from donors.

Other articles just above and below translate it to say "Kuwaiti Dinar" not Iraqi Dinar. Nothing to see here. Although, I have always contended the Iraqis would not want their money to play second fiddle to the Kuwaiti Dinar and would come out higher or on par. We will see hopefully right away, not Iraqi soon.

 

He explained that the treatment of an area of soil at an estimated cost of 20 million Kuwaiti dinars, and will increase the cost to 50 million dinars with the increased treatment of larger areas of soil.
