Iraq Receives The Remains Of A Missing Soldier In Kuwait

Baghdad Under the auspices of the International Tripartite Committee, Kuwait handed over today, Tuesday, the remains of an Iraqi soldier who went missing during the 1990-1991 Gulf War to the Republic of Iraq, along with his belongings and his military identity.

This development is the first of its kind since 2013, as these human remains were found in early February on Bubiyan Island, north of Kuwait, and transferred according to the methods agreed upon between the two countries, with the help of experts from the International Committee of the Red Cross, while the remains will be handed over to his family, after performing the required tests in the Iraqi Forensic Medicine Directorate.

The Tripartite Commission and its technical subcommittee were established in 1991 and 1994, respectively, to assist in ascertaining the fate of missing persons in connection with the 1990-1991 Gulf War. The International Committee of the Red Cross chairs these two committees, which are composed of representatives of the Republic of Iraq, the State of Kuwait, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the United States of America, the United Kingdom, and the Republic of France, and the United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI) joined them in 2014 as an observer.
