Precautions in Kuwait – Possibility of war in the region is high

Recent developments have been alarming and the government thinks the possibility of war in the region is high, taking into consideration the Amiri instructions for the leadership and the general public to take all the necessary precautions, says National Assembly Speaker Marzouq Al- Ghanim.

Al-Ghanim made the statement after the parliamentary session held behind closed doors Thursday as per the request of Justice Minister and State Minister for National Assembly Affairs Fahad Afasi as the government was expected to brief the Assembly on the current situation and present its general precautionary plan which includes ensuring food and medical security in case of military escalation.

The Speaker confirmed that the ministries presented the precautionary measures, including the Ministry of Information’s plan to raise awareness on the importance of maintaining internal stability.

Majority of the Assembly members were satisfied with the briefing, which the Speaker described as better than what was done in the past. The session concluded with several recommendations for the government, while MP Mohammed Al-Dallaal and some of his colleagues were instructed to prepare the official statement of the Assembly to be released by the beginning of next week.

Asked about the possibility of war or state of emergency, the Speaker said that based on the information revealed by the concerned ministers, the possibility is unfortunately high as the situation is alarming and deviating from the preferred course.
He explained Kuwait is a small country that affects and gets affected, but in this situation, its influence is small compared to the repercussions as there are bigger players on board. Nevertheless, the whole world knows the humanitarian and diplomatic capabilities of HH the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al- Sabah, so the Assembly will do everything it can to support the Amir, he added.
