UNITED NATIONS, Aug 6 (KUNA) -- Kuwait's permanent representative to the UN Ambassador Abdullah al-Murad met his British counterpart, John Sawers, the current president of the UN Security Council, on the UN Resolution No 833 on the Kuwaiti-Iraqi border.
Speaking to KUNA following the meeting, the Kuwaiti ambassador said he had discussed with Sawers the significance of, and commitment to, the UN resolution, together with bilateral relations.
He hailed the UN chief's report on the UN Resolution 1856 and Iraq's efforts to exit from the Chapter VII as "favorable", but said some points still needed to be clarified.
However, he said Kuwait was ready for finding consensual solutions acceptable to both sides.
Al-Murad also supported the UN Secretary-General's High-Level Coordinator Gennady Tarasov's efforts regarding Kuwaiti missing properties and prisoners of war (POWs).
But, he termed relations between two neighboring countries as "distinguished".
Al-Murad is expected to meet UNSC members separately in the coming few days to promote his country's position on such issues.
