SULAIMANI — Iraq has completed its payment of $52.4 billion in compensation for its invasion of Kuwait in 1990, the United Nations Compensation Commission (UNCC) said on Wednesday (February 9). 

The UN confirmed the final payment was made on January 13 and all compensation has been fully paid to individuals, companies and governments who proved they suffered damages due to Iraq’s invasion and occupation of Kuwait. 

The commission was established nearly 31 years ago in Geneva, Switzerland to process the claims and payments in compensation for damages suffered in the Gulf War. 

About 1.5 million claims out of 2.7 million filed with the UNCC were awarded, according to the United Nations. 

The Central Bank announced in December 2021 the last installment of reparations payments, amounting to $44 million, had been issued.

The bank said in a statement it hoped ending the compensation would affect “reintegrating the Iraqi banking system into the global banking system.”

Iraq was obliged to pay $52.4 billion in compensation to Kuwait according to the UNT Security Council Resolution 687, adopted on 3 April, 1991.
