Cut ties with regional countries who criticized execution
They have no regard for suffering of Kuwaitis: MPs
KUWAIT CITY: MPs have asked the government to cut ties with regional countries, which have criticized the execution of former Iraqi president Saddam Hussein as "they have no regard for the sufferings of Kuwaitis."
Calling these countries supporters of Iraqi aggression against Kuwait, MPs urged the government to develop a new strategy to deal with them. "The new strategy should take into account the behavior of these countries in the past, present and in the future," they say.
Regretting the fact that some of these countries were given huge financial aid by the country, MPs asked the government to seek approval of the Parliament before it doles out financial grants to other countries.
"From now onwards, we will not allow government to take such decisions without any supervision," says MP Musallam Al-Barrak.
As a member of the Parliamentary Committee for Financial Affairs, Al-Barrak says he will ask for opening the file of Kuwaiti foreign relations.
