KUWAIT CITY, Aug 4, (KUNA): His Highness the Prime Minister Sheikh Sabah Khaled Al-Hamad Al-Sabah told lawmakers on Tuesday that the health of His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah is witnessing “remarkable improvements.”
In his intervention during a parliamentary session at the National Assembly, he also recalled the painful 30-year memory of Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait. “Kuwaitis were a symbol of unity and cohesion as they overcame all difficulties,” he said, applauding “our brothers and friends” worldwide, who helped liberate the country in 1991.
Separately, he affirmed the government’s readiness and transparent approach to discussing its coronavirus efforts, expressing his surprise at the inclusion of a request to discuss the matter within the three-article parliamentary grilling against the finance minister.
“We will talk about what we did wrong and what we might be wrong about,” he said, “about what we do not know, what we will learn about and what we will overcome – clearly.”
“For all of you know that the whole world is dealing with a health crisis, nobody knows the extents of which but God.” The government is ready to benefit from parliamentary suggestions in regards to the matter, he added.
“As long as we are human, we will surely make mistakes. We will review (our decisions),” he said. “We will make adjustments as much as possible, and we will face up to and assume our responsibilities,” he added. Other matters have come to the fray in the midst of the pandemic issue, which he said the government would do all in its power to address “without hesitation.”
