Baghdad / News

In conjunction with the anniversary of the Iraqi occupation of Kuwait, a Bloomberg report highlighted the improving relationship between the two countries, putting aside their leadership differences and working together for the good of their citizens.

The writer Bobby Ghosh said in an article published by the agency "Bloomberg" that seeing the scene of the delivery of Iraq the remains of 48 Kuwaitis who were lost during the Gulf War at the Safwan border crossing, "is wonderful. At least to realize the correct end of the fate of its missing. "

The writer said that this celebration marks an important milestone in the journey taken by Kuwait and Iraq towards normalization of relations since the fall of Saddam Hussein in 2003, with the current rulers in Baghdad to work on the basis of "Elly Fat Matt."

Last month, Prime Minister Adel Abdel Mahdi said that "the outlook is far greater than the fears and obstacles between the two countries."

Earlier in the summer, the emir of Kuwait visited Baghdad on his first trip, and Iraqi President Barham Saleh traveled to Kuwait City for the first time last winter.

Building diplomatic confidence is a major strategic goal for Baghdad. Iraq, located between two regional crises - the confrontation between the United States and Iran in the Gulf, and the growing hostility between Saudi Arabia and the Tehran regime - sees Kuwait as a relatively safe port, especially as the emirate still maintains friendly relations with these three foes, allowing it to deepen economic relations with Iraq without raising suspicions or enmity with anyone.

For Kuwait, Iraq is a huge market and investment opportunity that stands at its doorstep. Iraq is also an escape from the tensions of the Arabian Peninsula, and therefore Iraq is one of the few places where Kuwait's foreign policy can expand.

This overlap of interests is already paying off. Iraq and Kuwait are planning to develop joint oil fields, one in the Safwan area. It is an opportunity to leave decades of disputes over land ownership and what lies behind it. Kuwaitis are also helping develop gas fields in southern Iraq. For Baghdad, these projects have the potential to develop a hydrocarbon strategy independent of distant regional interests.

Aside from oil, Kuwait promised to invest heavily in rebuilding Iraqi cities devastated by the battles against ISIS. There are also plans to establish special economic zones on the border, allowing each side free access to each other's markets. Last month, the trade ministers of the two countries visited a potential site for one of these areas - in Safwan.

It is likely that it will be years before the remains of the bodies and remains of the Kuwaitis who died between 1990-1991 are found; for now, Iraq and Kuwait are burying their differences, which is good for everyone.
