KUWAIT CITY, Dec 15: Kuwaiti Foreign Minister Sheikh Salem Abdullah Al-Jaber Al-Sabah on Thursday lauded the completion of a housing project in the port city of Umm Qasr, south Iraq. The project will be handed over to the housing dept. of the Iraqi Ministry of Construction, Housing, Municipalities and Public Works soon, the minister noted. “Under instructions from the Kuwaiti government in 2013, Kuwait Fund for Arab Economic Development started implementing this housing project to replace the houses in Umm Qasr adjacent to the Kuwaiti-Iraqi borderline as a prelude to removal of those houses,” Sheikh Salem pointed out.
The move is in keeping with recommendations of the UN mission on maintenance of the Kuwait-Iraq border marks and removal of obstacles along both sides of the borderline, he explained. The project is a great achievement that reflects the care of the leaders of the two countries for the brotherly relations and their keenness on opening new horizons for the mutually beneficial cooperation, he added.
