BAGHDAD, Nov 30 (KUNA) -- Iraq's ministries of foreign and defense affairs renewed a call upon citizens on Tuesday to report any information regarding remains of missing Kuwaitis or Kuwaiti properties.
The two ministries, in a written humanitarian appeal distributed today, urged Iraqis or any person who may possess information about burial locations of Iraqis or Kuwaitis, lost in the beginning of the Iraqi invasion (of Kuwait in 1990) or any information about the Kuwaiti properties, namely documents, the Amiri archive, and report back rapidly.
They called for communicating with the two departments, or the Iraqi diplomatic missions abroad or the team of the International Committee of the Red Cross in Baghdad.
The Iraqi departments, that included phone numbers for the informants, noted the keenness on leaving no stone unturned to locate remains of missing Kuwaitis and Kuwaiti items, in line with Iraq's relevant international obligations.
The file of the missing Kuwaitis and the Kuwaiti archive had been restricted to the Iraqi human rights ministry before it was shifted to the defense ministry. And later, the foreign affairs department was added. (end) ahh.rk
