Kuwait strongly deplores Lebanon Info. Minister's comments on Saudi Arabia, UAE
KUWAIT, Oct 27 (KUNA) -- The Kuwaiti Foreign Ministry on Wednesday voiced vehement condemnation and disapproval of the Lebanese information minister's remarks on Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates (UAE).
In his comments, the Lebanese minister pressed baseless accusations against both sisterly countries, which ignore their great and much-appreciated role in supporting Yemen and its people and even contradict the authentic reality of the current situation in Yemen, the ministry said in a statement.
The statements also run counter to the Lebanese government's official position and wink at the crucial role of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the UAE as well as the Arab coalition to support Yemen's legitimacy, it added.
The Kuwaiti Foreign Ministry has summoned the Lebanese charge d'affires in Kuwait Hadi Hashem and handed him an official memo of protest including Kuwait's utter disapproval of these comments which have nothing to do whatsoever with the reality and contradict the simplest rules of dealings between countries.
