The Truth about Kuwait (1).
[Baghdad], Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Juli, 1961. 8vo. Original printed wrappers; pp. 27, one map; wrappers a trifle spotted, otherwise very good. First edition, extremely rare. This is a public protestation of the Iraqi government against the independence of Kuwait. In June 1961 Kuwait became independent with the end of the British protectorate and Sheikh Abdullah Al-Salim Al-Sabah became Emir. Under the terms of the newly drafted constitution, Kuwait held its first parliamentary elections in 1963. Kuwait was the first Arab state in the Persian Gulf area to establish a constitution and parliament. The new state became the most developed country in the region and prospered, with the Kuwaiti governement setting up the world's first sovereign wealth fund. Of course, the Iraqi governement in this paper claims to have legitimate rights to rule Kuwait as part of Basrah province.
