Iraq says it’s ready to hand over Kuwait archives
Iraq is reportedly ready to hand over to Kuwaiti officials some of the archives looted during the 1990 invasion, a major source of trouble between the two neighbours.
Kuwait News Agency (Kuna)
reported that Baghdad informed Portugal, the chair of the Security Council, on Tuesday about the decision.
Iraqi Ambassador Hamid Al Bayati told the Council president in a letter that the Iraqi foreign minister sent a letter to the Kuwait embassy in Baghdad informing them of the existence of 136 microfilm cassettes that included the official archives of the official newspaper Kuwait Today.
The letter did not mention when the letter was sent to the Kuwaiti embassy, the official news agency said.
