KUWAIT CITY, Feb 4: Minister of State for Cabinet and Municipal Affairs Sheikh Mohammad Al-Abdullah Al-Sabah has said the government is ready to sit down for discussion with all interested groups to revive harmony among Kuwaiti families, reports Al-Rai daily.

Responding to assertion that the government having dialogue with these groups on a roundtable could aggravate political intrigues, Sheikh Mohammed reiterated that government plays an open door policy and will settle for meaningful dialogue with all interested groups. He pointed out that government would have loved to dialogue with the youth, but it will be impossible when these youths are not ready to show their identities. He urged interested groups to indicate readiness for dialogue.

Meanwhile, the minister disclosed the Deputy Prime Minister, Finance Minister Mustafa Al-Shimali is in charge of the issue of cancellation of loans interests.

He reiterated Al-Shimali has full knowledge of the issue and that Cabinet under the leadership of Sheikh Jaber Al-Mubarak assigns each issue to the minister concerned.

In a press statement after the meeting, Al-Muttawa also quoted the Amir as saying he will respect the verdict of the Constitutional Court on the one-vote decree.  He added the Amir is keen on addressing the loan interest issue, while stressing the need for the executive and legislative authorities to reach an agreement in this regard and ensure justice for all without depleting the State coffers.
