Kuwait dismisses the "slanderous" accusations lodged against it over terror financing, its deputy foreign minister Khaled Al­Jarallah said on Monday.

"I am baffled over how Kuwait has been included in a list of terrorism­financing countries," AlJarallah told Al­Jazeera television, citing the Gulf state's hosting of a trio of donor conferences in support of Syria as counterevidence.

On the status of Kuwait's embassy in Syria, he said, "operations will only resume with the Arab league's consent." He foreboded a "thaw in relations" between Syria and Arab Gulf states in the coming days as more nations look to reopen their embassies in Damascus.

Meanwhile, in Kuwait, he said the Syrian embassy has the leeway needed to look after the Syrian diaspora in the country, which number around a quarter of a million people.
