The Indian Ambassador to Kuwait Sunil Jain has denied reports as ‘speculation’ that the government of Kuwait has stopped importing labor from India in protest against a Indian government decision requiring employers of Indian female domestic workers to pay a $2,500 bank guarantee with the Indian Embassy, reports Annahar daily.
The Ambassador said this in response to a query from the media on the sidelines of the condolence meeting for martyr Palestinian Minister Zeyad Abu Ain at the Palestinian Embassy in Kuwait.
The ambassador went on to say the negotiations are continuing to solve this delicate issue. The ambassador said, “Don’t believe anything that has been published by the mass media on this issue because it is untrue. “We have good relations with Kuwait and our discussions continue with Kuwait’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs,” he said.
