Joint naval forces foil smuggling Somalia's coal into Kuwait
MANAMA, May 17 (KUNA) -- The joint naval forces command in Bahrain Wednesday announced thwarting an attempt of smuggling shipments of Somalia coal into the State of Kuwait.
The command said in a statement to KUNA that the shipments were seized in collaboration and coordination with different naval forces apparatuses in the Arabia Gulf and Kuwait Coastguard Department.
There was information that some ships carrying huge quantities of Somalia's forbidden coal headed to territorial waters of Kuwait, the statement added.
The coal is banned in accordance with a United Nations Security Council resolution to prevent funding terrorist groups in Somalia. It is the first seizure in its kind.
The Manama-based joint naval forces command include 25 countries, and aim to achieve security and combat terrorism and piracy in territorial waters in the Arabian Gulf and surrounding Bays. (end) mgh.hm
