Stateless issue not raised in Kuwait-Comoros talks: Al-Hamad
Kuwait News Agency - 28 July, 2008
Kuwait Ambassador to Egypt and non-resident Ambassador to Comoros Dr. Rashid Al-Hamad said on Sunday no Kuwaiti official has raised the issue of stateless (bedoon) residents of Kuwait in the talks with Comoro officials.
He made the remarks in response to recent reports on refusal of Comoros to grant its nationality to stateless people in Arab countries including Kuwait.
"The recent visits of Kuwaiti officials to the United Republic of Comoros aimed exclusively to enhance the bilateral ties and boost Kuwait role in the economic development of Comoros," he said in statements to KUNA here.
