KUWAIT CITY, Oct 8, (KUNA): The Cabinet on Monday commended Ministry of Higher Education for cracking down government employees – citizens and expatriates – whose education certifi cate were fake.

Meanwhile, the government assigned the Directorate General for Civil Aviation (DGCA) to prepare an executive plan for the construction and operation of Kuwait Airport’s Terminal Two (T2). DGCA should specify the timetable for the construction and operation, and to notify the Cabinet about any obstacles facing implementation, said Al-Saleh.
The government, meanwhile, assigned Kuwait Petroleum Corporation (KPC) to coordinate with the Foreign Ministry to review and activate an agreement between KPC and China’s institute for insurance of exports and credit. Sheikh Sabah Al-Khaled briefed the Cabinet about recent visits by foreign ministers of Malta and Afghanistan, and their talks with senior officials which dealt with bilateral relations and issues of mutual interest.
