KUWAIT, March 4 (KUNA) -- The Kuwaiti Government will consider
recommendations tabled by the National Assembly regarding the situation in

"We appreciate the recommendations taken by the Assembly in its last
session, as they will be reviewed by the Government," Al-Jarallah told
reporters after attending a meeting of the Assembly's foreign affairs
committee earlier today.
"We listened to MPs 'valuable' comments, as well as ideas on the issue...
We would benefit from this discussion in our diplomatic action, either on
regional or international levels," he said.
Al-Jarallah asserted that the discussions were "clear and frank", hoping
for such meetings to continue "for Kuwait's best interests."
As for whether there were any reservations on the side of the Government on
the matter, he said "there was no notion tabled to be reserved over... Au
contraire, everyone interacted with what has been said."
