BAGHDAD / Aswat al-Iraq: The French government expressed its great concern for Iraqi-Kuwaiti relations, connected with the occupation of the latter in 1990, in addition to the fate of prisoners of war in Iraq.
The Kuwaiti official electronic site quoted a senior French diplomat expressed the necessity of returning Kuwaiti national archives and other properties, as dispatched by Kuwaiti news agency (KUNA).
French foreign ministry spokesman Bernard Valero was quoted calling Baghdad government to "exert all efforts to solve all pending questions between the two sides".
He added that his government "encourages Iraq to implement all Kuwaiti demands, which were repeated by the UN Security Council".
Iraq is under UN Chapter VII for invading Kuwait in 1990, where international force was used against it as "a state threatening international security", in addition to freezing its funds in world banks "compensate Kuwait for the damages incurred by the invasion".
