Kuwait denies crisis with Iraq over building maritime platform

Kuwaiti First Deputy Prime Minister and Defense Minister Sheikh Nasser Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah

Kuwait (IraqiNews.com) – The Kuwaiti army denied on Sunday media reports that there was a crisis with Iraq against the backdrop of Kuwait’s building of a maritime platform in Fisht Al-Eij area located within its territorial waters.

Kuwait’s state-run news agency KUNA quoted First Deputy Prime Minister and Defense Minister Sheikh Nasser Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah as affirming “the deep-rooted friendly relations between both countries and the continuation of cooperation in all fields, including the military one.”

“Both countries share the desire to enhance these relations and cooperation,” a statement by the General Staff of the Kuwait Army cited him as saying.

“The Presidency of the General Staff reserves its right to take legal action against promulgators of such inaccurate allegations, who seek to sow the seeds of sedition and discord between the two countries,” the statement warned.

The statement urged social media users to ignore any news of anonymous sources and draw information from official sources such as the directorate of moral guidance and public relations of the Ministry of Defense.
