BAGHDAD (AP) — An Iraqi plane has landed in Kuwait for the first time since Saddam Hussein's 1990 invasion of the tiny emirate.
Iraq's Transportation Ministry spokesman says Wednesday's flight will open "important horizons for cooperation based on brotherhood" with Kuwait.
Karim al-Nouri also says demand will determine the number of flights in the future.
Government ministers from both Kuwait and Iraq were on hand for the ceremonial landing at the international airport in Kuwait City.
Kuwait's parliament in January approved a deal under which Baghdad will pay $500 million in compensation to Kuwait's national carrier for damages caused during the Iraqi occupation. The accord seeks to end a long-running dispute over reparations for Kuwait Airways.
Although the airline dispute appears settled, there are other disputes over war reparations between the two nations.
