Kuwait, Iraq discuss maintaining border markers with U.N.


The Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Operations, Jean-Marie Guenhenno, made the offer during a meeting with Kuwaiti and Iraqi delegates in New York to discuss this issue with the Secretariat, late on Monday, according to officials who took part in the meeting.

Head of the Kuwaiti delegation Ambassador Majdi Al-Dhifiri told KUNA following the meeting, that this meeting came to implement U.N. Security Council resolution 833 on demarking Iraqi-Kuwaiti borders.

A technical team from the U.N. has issued a report and recommendations on the situation, Al-Dhifiri said.

Kuwait is working to implement all the recommendations and have taken all the measures; Iraq still needs to tackle a few issues, he added.

The delegations will review maps and images with the U.N. team Tuesday to see the measures that still need to be taken by both sides, the ambassador said.

During the meeting the two delegations will also be briefed about the U.N. team’s work and coordinate with the technical teams in both Kuwait and Iraq, he added.

Al-Dhifiri said this meeting is not about demarking borders but about maintaining border posts.



Bahraini PM urges maintaining national democratic atmospheres
