Iraqi Foreign Minister, Dr. Ibrahim Al Ashaiqer Al Jaafari, has said that Iraq appreciates Kuwait’s agreement to postpone payment of the remaining debt (reparations) due to be paid by Iraq this year until 2017.
The minister praised the Kuwaiti Government and people for their support of Iraq in its war against the terrorist gangs of Daesh, adding that these actions show the depth of the ‘brotherly ties’ between the two countries.
He said Kuwait’s response to Iraq’s request was quick, stressing that Iraq ‘will not forget this honorable position’.
