Shafaq News / On Thursday, the Speaker of the Iraqi Parliament, Muhammad al-Halbousi asked the Kuwaiti government to postpone the payment of debts owed by Iraq as a result of the invasion.

This came during his meeting with Kuwaiti Prime Minister Sabah Khaled Al-Hamad Al-Sabah, according to a statement issued by the Iraqi Parliament.

The statement stated that the two sides "discussed bilateral relations between the two countries, enhancing means of cooperation in all fields according to mutual interests, as well as discussing the latest regional and international developments, and the importance of joint coordination to face the challenges that the region is going through, under difficult circumstances."

The meeting also discussed "the importance of coordination to create an effective practical mechanism in order to follow up on the outcomes of the Kuwait Donors Conference, in order to support the reconstruction of Iraq and create new investment opportunities."

The two sides also addressed, "the file of the remaining payments from the debts owed by the Iraqi government to Kuwait, and the possibility of postponing their payment due to the financial crisis and the economic situation that the world is going through, including Iraq."

The Kuwaiti Prime Minister promised that he would continue his efforts in this regard, and that it would be among their priorities, referring to the Amir's recommendations to support Iraq in all areas. 

The total sums paid by Iraq to Kuwait, due to the 1990 invasion by Saddam Hussein, are about $ 49 billion.

And Iraq must deposit 5 percent of its export revenues from sales of oil, its products and gas, in a UN fund established under the name of the United Nations Compensation Fund.

In 1991, a UN Compensation Commission was formed, which obligated Baghdad to pay $ 52.4 billion in compensation to individuals, companies, governmental organizations and others, who suffered direct losses resulting from the invasion and occupation of Kuwait.

The big question is how Iraq will pay back Kuwait , in USD or IQD ? My guess is that Kuwait has agreed to a postponement because they know the IQD is set to revalue . I also suspect that Kuwait holds a boatload of dinar . Why else would Kuwait agree to a postponement when they have already waited for over twenty years? Kuwait has already signed off on a bunch of stuff allowing Iraq to emerge from Chapter 7. My guess is that the IQD will come out higher than Kuwait because otherwise they would be shooting themselves in the foot in the oil market.
