IRAQ: KUWAIT HAS POTENTIAL TO MAKE IRAQ’S RECONSTRUCTION CONFERENCE A SUCCESS

Kuwait’s remarkable status in the regional and international arenas, will greatly contribute to the success of the upcoming conference on Iraq’s reconstruction, Iraqi government stated, on Sunday.

“Kuwait enjoys a great respect of the Arab nations and Gulf cooperation Council (GCC) countries, which is a vital factor to motivate those nations to take part in the conference,” Iraqi cabinet’s Secretary General and head of the Iraqi team, tasked with preparing for the conference, Mahdi Al-Alaq, said, in remarks to KUNA today.

The distinguished Kuwaiti-European ties also boost chances for making the upcoming gathering a success, as Iraq received warm welcome by US, UK and a number of European countries, for the desire of Kuwait to host the event.

Iraq chose Kuwait as the best candidate to host the conference among other two Arab nations and a European country, he affirmed.

Iraq’s reconstruction conference will take place in Kuwait between Feb 12 and 14, with the participation of a number of countries, organisations and companies, he added
