BAGHDAD: UN chief Ban Ki-moon arrived in Baghdad on Thursday for talks with Iraqi leaders, state television said, after a visit to Kuwait in which he called for a new era in relations between the two countries.

Upon his arrival, the UN secretary general went into a meeting with Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari, said Iraqiya TV.

There are various outstanding issues between Iraq and Kuwait stemming from Iraq's 1990 invasion of its neighbour to the south. Baghdad currently pays five percent of its oil and gas revenue into a special UN fund that pays compensation to Kuwait.
