KUWAIT CITY, Oct 2: MP Obaid Al-Wasmi posted on his official Twitter account: “Kuwait does not negotiate Kuwait” in response to the national dialogue initiative of His Highness the Amir Sheikh Nawaf Al- Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah. He intends to present scenarios which reflect the ideas of the people of Kuwait, address all causes of disputes and correct the wrong paths. Commenting on the same issue, MP Ahmed Al-Hamad said that whoever aims to downplay the national dialogue by limiting it to one topic is totally wrong. He pointed out that the dialogue is comprehensive and any attempt to change it is unacceptable.
Addressing the citizens, MP Fayez Al- Jomhour affirmed the national dialouge will be in favor of the citizens and it will never be aimed at removing any of their rights. Rapporteur of the parliamentary Public Facilities Committee MP Abdulaziz Al- Saqaabi intends to call for a meeting between the panel and the concerned institutions to discuss the traffic issue. Al-Saqaabi explained that the reason behind his plan to call for the meeting is the government’s failure to implement the recommendations of National Assembly during the special session on Jan 9, 2020 after the death of Kuwaiti cyclist Saad Al-Subai’e because of an accident on Sheikh Jaber Causeway.
He added more than 20 recommendations were presented that time, including the allocation of lanes and tracks for cyclists. He asserted the government is not concerned about sports in general, and cycling in particular, despite the rising number of cyclists in the country. He said Qatar allotted a 34-kilometer cycling track, while Saudi Arabia announced its plan to establish a track more than 134 kilometers long for cyclists within its 2030 development. In Kuwait, cyclists are facing the danger of losing their lives due to the absence of cycling tracks. By Saeed Mahmoud Saleh Arab Times Staff
