Kuwait: UN Pays $590 Mln in Damages for 1990 Invasion

New York, 30 April 2010 – AKI

A United Nations commission has paid 590 million dollars to nine successful claimants in connection with Iraq’s 1990 invasion of Kuwait.

The latest round of payments brings the total amount of compensation disbursed by the UN Compensation Commission to individuals, corporations, governments and international organisations to nearly 29.5 billion dollars, the UN said on Thursday.

The vast majority of funds for compensation payments have come from the sale of Iraqi petroleum under the so-called Oil-for-Food programme, which came to an end in 2003, and later within the scope of arrangements made under Security Council resolutions.
