What is the telephone country code for Kuwait?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Kuwait is country code +965. There are no city codes or area codes. All numbers (except +965 18 numbers) have 8 digits after the country code.

Landline numbers begin with +965 2.

Mobile numbers begin with +965 5 (Viva), +965 6 (Wataniya Telecom), or +965 9 (Zain).

(The plus sign means "insert your international access prefix here." From a GSM mobile phone, you can enter the number in full international format, starting with the plus sign. The most common prefix is 00, but North America (USA, Canada, etc.) uses 011, Japan uses 010, Australia uses 0011, and many other countries use different prefixes.)

What was one reason why Iraq invasion of Kuwait prompted an international response?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Depending on whether you see the best in people or the worst in people, you can choose between one of these reasons:

1) Kuwait was a sovereign nation and the capture and subjugation of a free and independent nation is something the International Community will not abide.

2) Kuwait is a major oil producer and the conquest of Kuwait was sure to drive oil production down and oil prices up.

Will the Iraqi dinar revalue like the Kuwait dinar?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The Iraqi dinar has been in process of change since the issue of the New Iraqi Dinar in late 2004. ....Central Bank of Iraq financial statements indicate that the redemption of the old Saddam dinar and the old swiss dinar came to a total of around 7 trillion dinar. ....Those same financial statements indicate that the Central Bank of Iraq has been expanding the paper currency supply each and every year since then, and the current currency level is well over 32 trillion dinar. ....One must also consider that their current broad money supply is around 70 trillion dinar(the actual amount that must be revalued). .....These actions indicate that the Iraqi dinar is in fact going to go through a re denomination, and possibly then go through a series of revaluations in returning to a place of prominence among its regional currency partners.

...The Kuwaiti dinar was not subject to a grand revaluation back in 1990, but rather the victim of a loss of confidence following the invasion of the country by Saddam Hussein. Savvy speculators did make a nice gain on the currency when the rate returned to its previous levels. ......But many of the tales just don't add up. .....One must take into consideration that even to this day, there are only about 6.5 billion physical Kuwait dinar in existence.
