Kuwait Says Risk of War in the Region Is High, Calls for Unity
[AAWSAT] Kuwaiti National Assembly Speaker Marzouq al-Ghanim said on Thursday that the risks of war in the region were "very high," taking into consideration the arrival of US military troops to the waters of the Gulf to face Iran.
Following a secret meeting called for by the Kuwaiti National Assembly to discuss with the government the current regional challenges, Ghanim said in a press statement that the Kuwaiti government was expecting war to erupt in the Gulf.
The Speaker said that based on information revealed by the concerned ministers, the possibility was unfortunately high as the situation was alarming and going out of control.
Calling on the need to abide by the instructions of Kuwaiti Emir Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad al-Jaber Al Sabah, Ghanim urged Kuwaitis to maintain unity in face of challenges ahead.
