The Kuwaiti Ministry of Foreign Affairs closely followed up on the case of 10 citizens, who had gotten involved in an “incident” in Cyprus, a ministry official affirmed on Thursday.
Assistant Foreign Minister for Consular Affairs Sami Al-Hamad, in a statement, was commenting on reports on information outlets and social media regarding the condition of a number of Kuwaiti citizens in Cyprus who have been banned from returning home due to a “brawl case.” The ministry has been closely following on the issue of the nationals since the very moment of the “incident occurrence,” Al-Hamad said.
Upon instructions by the Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Sheikh Sabah AlKhaled Al-Hamad Al-Sabah, housing was made available for the concerned Kuwaiti citizens and their families, according to their desire and wishes, in addition to assigning a law agency to follow up on the case since the start, he explained.
Reacting to a video clip purporting that the Kuwaitis were deprived of housing, the assistant minster explained that the recording was done during their transfer from one residence to another and this situation lasted for only two hours. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs will spare no effort to follow up on Kuwaitis’ issues abroad, providing them with help and care.
