KUWAIT CITY, March 27, (KUNA): The Cabinet gave the thumbs up on Monday to an extradition agreement with the United Kingdom, which was signed last December and subsequently referred to Parliament.

Speaking to KUNA after the Cabinet’s routine meeting, Minister of Justice and Minister State for Cabinet Affairs Dr Falah Al-Azab said that the Cabinet has approved the extradition deal with the UK. On the agreement, he said that it is imperative since it supports efforts to bring convicts and fugitives to justice which in turn, will help ameliorate Kuwait’s ties with the UK. The extradition deal was co-signed on December 15th by Kuwaiti Deputy Foreign Minister Khaled Al-Jarallah and the UK’s Minister for the Middle East and Africa Tobias Ellwood.
