KUWAIT CITY, Dec 25, (KUNA): The Kuwaiti Cabinet has ordered that the Caracal military helicopter deal be taken to National Anti-Corruption Commission (NAZAHA). The order was given during the Cabinet’s customary weekly meeting on Monday, presided over by His Highness the Prime Minister Sheikh Jaber Al-Mubarak Al-Hamad Al-Sabah.
The latest move came following recent instructions by His Highness the Prime Minister sending the dossier to the commission and Kuwait State Audit Bureau (SAB) to check all relevant documents and report to the Cabinet as early as possible.
Also in a local issue, the Cabinet adopted a draft decree appointing new board members of the Central Agency for Public Tenders (CAPT), Deputy Premier and State Minister for Cabinet Affairs Anas Al-Saleh said in a statement following the meeting.
The ministers also congratulated His Highness the Amir, His Highness the Crown Prince and Kuwaiti people on New Year, wishing peace, security and stability worldwide. The Cabinet further voiced much satisfaction with the participation of Gulf football teams in the Arabian Gulf Cup, better known as Gulf 23, held in Kuwait, and appreciated the great efforts of the organizing committee. Meanwhile, the Kuwaiti Cabinet sharply deplored a recent planned missile attack by Yemen’s Houthi militias on the Saudi capital, Riyadh, as a “heinous aggression” on the kingdom’s security and stability.
This attack, according to the Cabinet, proves undoubtedly that this group shrugs off all international efforts to put an end to the current conflict in this wartorn Arab country. In this context, the Kuwaiti Cabinet reiterated that Kuwait stands by Saudi Arabia in all measures it is taking to maintain its security and stability, wishing the kingdom everlasting safety and security under the wise leadership of King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud.
