Board of Kuwait Handball Association has received invitation to participate in the Fourth Islamic Solidarity Games, (ISG) which will be held in the city of Baku, Azerbaijan from May 12-22, 2017, reports Al-Seyassah daily.

Kuwait Olympic Committee had addressed the association on the possibility of its participation in the games with a suitable preparation plan and proposed budget. The board will meet today to discuss the issue as part of the meeting agenda, and the possibility of organizing an overseas training camp for the national team during the period between Jan 20 and Feb 4, as Kuwait handball team was banned from participating in international competitions since 2015 after its board failed three times to elect a new general assembly.
