    Iraq formally request the postponement of Kuwaiti reparations and the United Nations is being studied by tomorrow Wednesday, December 17, 1 / December 2014 16:55 The "Iraq's request to postpone the payment of $ 4.6 billion in compensation to destroy oil installations in Kuwait," a result of Saddam Hussein's occupation of Kuwait in the system from 1990 to 1991, a UN official said on Wednesday. The official added, "We have a request to freeze the mandatory deposit of five percent of Iraqi oil revenues in the Compensation Fund for a year." Kuwait will examine major powers in the Committee of the United Nations Compensation Iraqi official request in a special session in Geneva on Thursday. The Finance Minister Hoshyar Zebari said Thursday that Iraq seeks "to postpone the value of a final batch of 4.6 billion dollars of compensation concerning the occupation of the former regime of Kuwait in 1990 and 1991," adding, "We are truly committed to pay this money on time until this moment." He added "We are holding discussions with Kuwaiti and seek to postpone payment for two years, or at least for a year to make some room, to provide a realistic budget," noting, "There you understand this, you will see the coming days, some diplomatic frenetic activity between Baghdad and Kuwait, Geneva and New York to make a joint request to postpone the payment," he said, adding that "postponement for a year or two will give Iraq an outlet of the financial crisis." For his part, announced that First Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Sheikh Sabah Khaled Al-Hamad Al-Sabah said "Kuwait has responded and will respond in whatever alleviates these difficulties faced by the brothers in Iraq within the powers entrusted to the Committee on compensation and without prejudice to the UN Security Council resolutions." He added that "the international community is responsible for the difficult economic situation in Iraq," adding that "the Committee on compensation and emanating from the UN Security Council resolutions will consider this request." This comes Iraqi request of Kuwait at a time when the government is facing a liquidity crisis due to falling oil prices and fight al Daash. Since the first time allowed the resumption of Iraq's oil sales for nearly two decades before Iraq pays money to a United Nations body that oversees compensation for looting and damage caused by the previous regime of the occupation of Kuwait in the nineties of the last century, which lasted seven months. It was compensation from Iraq to exchange more than a million demands were almost all pay and compensation totaling $ 52.4 billion of annual allocations amounting to five percent of the oil export revenue protection from Iraq to the United Nations http://www.alliraqnews.com/2011-04-18-02-57-37/159954-2014-12-17-13-23-34.html

    Thanks harry. COM special meeting, maybe this time they will agree to approve the budget and get it to parliament for a vote. Glad they are working so hard with Kuwait to come up with a new plan on payment to defer it for a while. Kuwait seems to be ok with this. Would rather they paid it, but with all the funds Maliki and his buddys pilfered, well...
