Given the level of antipathy between Kuwait and Iraq since the first Gulf war, the government will be anxious to see how a post-Saddam Iraq unfolds. The Speaker of the National Assembly, Jassim Al Khoraffi, said that the government would be in no rush to forge relations with Baghdad, rather, it was for the new Iraqi government to show the first sign of goodwill.
