Kuwait asks UNSC to retain Iraq-Kuwait issue on its agenda for 2013

UNITED NATIONS, Jan 25 (KUNA) -- Kuwait on Friday requested the Security Council to retain the issue between Iraq-Kuwait on its agenda for the year 2013.
In a letter to the Council's current President Masoud Khan of Pakistan, Kuwaiti Ambassador Mansour Ayyad Al-Otaibi said "I should like to notify you that the Government of the State of Kuwait wishes to see the following item retained on the list of matters of which the Security Council is seized: The situation between Iraq and Kuwait." Member states interested in retaining a particular item on the Council's agenda for the year have to notify the Council's president before the end of February. If those states fail to do so, the item drops automatically from the list of items the Council is seized of.
Last week the United Arab Emirates requested that the issue of the three islands - Abu Mousa, little Tunb and greater Tunb - disputed with Iran, be also retained on the Council's agenda. (end) sj.sd KUNA 251844 Jan 13NNNN
