Why did Kuwait become a sovereign state and not a part of Iraq?

Iraq gained independence from the UK in 1932 where as Kuwait did not gain indepenence until 1961. It was found in the 1930's that Kuwait had the 5th largest oil rerserve in the world. Due to the richness of their resourses it would have been in the intrest of those with power in Kuwait to be independent of Iraq. This is my personal speculation.
