KUWAIT CITY, Sept 19: Foreign Minister Sheikh Salem Al-Sabah has strongly criticized the recent ruling by Iraq’s Federal Supreme Court concerning the 2012 Khor Abdullah Agreement between Kuwait and Iraq, reports Al-Rai daily.

Sheikh Salem Al-Sabah stated in an interview with the Kuwait TV that his visit to New York had a specific purpose — to meet with Gulf counterparts, foreign ministers of friendly nations, and United Nations officials to convey Kuwait’s stance.

He expressed Kuwait’s condemnation of the ruling’s content, highlighting its historical inaccuracies. The ruling’s inclusion of a lengthy historical account of Kuwait from 1546 to 1990 alongside a purely technical agreement was deemed surprising and regrettable.

He emphasized that after more than 30 years, hearing the same language from the Iraqi side was unacceptable and strongly condemned.

Sheikh Salem Al-Sabah perceived an attempt to undermine the agreement’s ratification, an agreement duly carried out by the legislative bodies of both nations and deposited with the United Nations.

He emphasized that Kuwait’s position garnered support and understanding from the officials he met. He expressed hope that the Iraqi government would take necessary actions to address this issue and respect Kuwait’s sovereignty, its territorial integrity, and the agreement established between both nations.
