Baghdad (IraqiNews.com) MP, Rafea Abdul Jabbar, of the Parliamentary Foreign Relations Committee accused the United States of America and the United Kingdom of keeping Iraq under the UN Charter’s Seventh Chapter under the justification of the Kuwaitis debts in order to control it.
Speaking to Iraqi News (IraqiNews.com), he stated “The issue of the Kuwaiti debts has no relation to the Seventh Chapter, but the USA and UK used it as a justification to keep controlling Iraq.”
‘The government allocated 500 USD Million to finish the issue of the Kuwaiti debts when it formed a committee from the Secretariat of the Council of Ministers to follow up this issue,” he added.
“The Kuwaiti authorities have good intentions over settling this issue especially after signing the pact related to settling all the pending cases,” he pointed out.
“The Foreign Relations Committee met the Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General for Iraq, Martin Kobler, where he assured the good intentions of the UN to settle this issue,” he concluded.
Earlier, The United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI) announced that Kuwait agreed to invest the sums of the compensations that Iraq has to pay in Basra and other provinces.”
