“Iraq is eyeing new relations with all Arab countries, particularly neighboring Kuwait, based on mutual respect and trust,” Al-Maliki said in a meeting with Kuwait’s Ambassador here Ali Al-Moamen.
Al-Maliki called on the State of Kuwait to forget about the bad memories of Saddam Hussein regime’s occupation of Kuwait and to open a new chapter with Iraq.
For his part, Ambassador Al-Moamen said that His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah is eager to develop ties with Iraq at all levels.
Al-Moamen renewed HH the Amir’s invitation to the Iraqi Premier to visit Kuwait.
In response to his invitation, Al-Maliki said he plans to visit Kuwait ahead of the coming Arab Summit, to be held in Iraq.
