Minute on Postal Arrangements between Kuwait and Iraq, dated March 5 1953
The arrangements outlined in General Post Office letter (Ref. 70145/46/57)
of 13th December, 1952, were discussed between his Excellency Abdul Baqi
Abdullah and Colonel E. W. Wood in Bagdad. The following is a summary of
the conclusions reached : —
General: The detailed working arrangements are to be as simple as possible.
Postage Rates: There will be no practical difficulty in the exchange of
correspondence charged at the " inland " rates of the countries of origin. (Iraq
will advise the General Post Office of her rates when notifying formal acceptance
of the proposals.)
Terminal Charges: Each administration will accept parcels from the other
for delivery within Kuwait or Iraq as the case may be without raising terminal
Mails—Documentation: Mails will continue to be documented as at present
(parcels to be listed individually) but they will be excluded from international
Letter Mails—Make Up: Each administration will make up direct bags or
labelled bundles for independent addresses within the other's postal territory.
Changes in circulation arrangements from time to time will be arranged between
the offices of the Director-General P. & T. Iraq and the Postal Superintendent,

Registered Items—Compensation for Loss, &c.: Each administration will
continue to be responsible for the payment of compensation in respect of losses, &c.,
occurring within its own territory.
Air Mails—Surcharge Service: Each administration will continue to offer a
surcharge service as at present. (In this connection it was mentioned that the rate
from Kuwait might shortly be increased.)
Road Transport: The Director-General P. & T. Iraq will seek tenders for a
road service between the post offices at Basrah and Kuwait. The basis of the
tenders will be provision of a regular daily service (7 days) in each direction and
the usual arrangements in regard to safeguarding of mails in transit and liability
for losses will be required.
an h\k The Director-General P. & T. Iraq proposed that use of the once weekly sea
service should be ceased upon the introduction of a road service (this will mean
that transit surface mails will also be conveyed by road) and that payment to the
contractor should be on a monthly basis calculated on the current average traffic.
It was agreed that the Director-General P. & T. Iraq should pay for the road
service in both directions and recover dues in respect of despatches from Kuwait
through the medium of the General Account with the United Kingdom (in sterling).
The apportionment of charges as between the two administrations should be equal,
but this might be varied in the event of marked variation in the overall weights
of mail despatched.
The Postal Superintendent at Bahrain will also obtain tenders for the service
from contractors in Kuwait and the information thus obtained will be notified to
the Director-General P. & T. Iraq by the General Post Office, for purpose of
