CAIRO, Aug 2 (KUNA) -- The State of Kuwait is among leading Arab States that abide by principles for boycotting Israel, said a visiting Kuwaiti official here on Tuesday.
In remarks to KUNA, Walid Al-Hammadi, the head of Israel's boycott bureau at Kuwait Finance Ministry's custom general directorate, stressed on necessity of maintaining support for the Arab boycott officers.
Speaking on sidelines of the 90th conference for officers of the Arab boycott offices, Al-Hammadi said participants in the meeting discussed "status of some foreign companies that deal with Israel, or deal in products produces by the Israeli settlements."
Israel is seeking to infiltrate Arab markets with disguise of foreign companies, the Kuwaiti official revealed.
The conference supports foreign and Arab groups that advocate boycotting Israel, namely the international Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions Movement (BDS), which has played a key global role for encouraging the boycott.
Kuwait acts to implement the boycott seriously through coordination with the main Arab League Israel Boycott Bureau in Damascus. "We in Kuwait do not allow Israeli commodities enter the Kuwaiti marker and the people of the country support the boycott," he affirmed, noting that concerned authorities often receive notifications about sneaking commodities.
