Head of the Arab Shooting Confederation (ASC) Duaij Al-Otaibi said Sunday 45 countries have so far confirmed participation in the His Highness the Amir's Third International Shooting Championship, due next month.

Al-Otaibi, also President of Kuwait Shooting Club, told a news conference he expected the number of countries competing in the tournament to exceed 50.

He said the championship has a "special taste" because it was held under the name of His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah.

Al-Otaibi expected more than 600 shooters to compete in all competitions.

Al-Otaibi, meanwhile, said shooting teams from Sweden, North korea, Uzbekistan and Azerbaijan would be training in Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Olympic Shooting Complex in Kuwait.
