KUWAIT, Dec 11 (KUNA) — Leaders of the Arab Gulf states welcomed Wednesday Iraq’s compliance with UN resolutions related to border signs’ maintenance, as well as referral of Kuwaiti prisoners, missing persons and property to the UN mission in Iraq.
The leaders also condemned the firing of rockets from the Iraqi territories against Saudi border areas, considering it “unacceptable violation” of the international law and good neighborliness principles.
In a final communique of the 34th GCC summit, the leaders welcomed Iraq’s compliance with relevant UN resolutions namely resolution 833 of 1993 related to finalizing maintenance of border signs between Kuwait and Iraq. They also welcomed Iraq’s signing of a memorandum of understanding over the organization of maintenance operation, as well as Iraq’s agreement with the UN regarding Baghdad’s receiving of compensations for Iraqi farmers, in compliance with UN resolution 899 of 1994. The Arab Gulf leaders also welcomed UN Security Council (UNSC) resolution 2197 of 2013 which referred the file of Kuwaiti prisoners and missing, and Kuwaiti properties to the UN Assistance Mission in Iraq (UNAMI).
This agreement, they said, was a positive development of relations between Iraq and the State of Kuwait.
They said the question of prisoners and missing people as well as return of Kuwaiti properties were issues of “pure humanitarian nature,” hoping the Iraqi government would continue cooperation with Kuwait and the international community to address these matters.
The Gulf leaders, meanwhile, warned against consequences that would result from the firing of rockets, and urged the Iraqi government to prevent occurance of these acts in future.
The leaders also condemned the bomb attacks in a number of Iraqi cities that killed many innocent people. They also reiterated the importance of unity of Iraq and non-interference in its internal affairs.
