Kuwait to Open Consulates in Erbil and Basra

Kuwait will open consulates in Erbil and Basra in the next few days in an effort to increase the country’s investment in the regions, the Kuwaiti Embassy in Baghdad said today.

Kuwait's ambassador to Iraq Ali al-Muamman said: "Kuwait is working to expand diplomatic and economic relations with Iraq by opening consulates in various Iraqi provinces."

Relations between Iraq and Kuwait have improved in recent years, but remain strained as a result of disagreements over the effects of the 1990 Gulf war. There are disputes over the need for the Iraqi government to pay compensation, the positioning of the border and contested oil fields.
