Kuwait dismisses slanderous accusations against it over terror financing, Deputy Foreign Minister Khaled Al-Jarallah said yesterday.
“I am baffled how Kuwait has been included in a list of terrorism financing countries,” Jarallah told a television channel.
He even cited the state’s hosting of a trio of donor conferences in support of Syria as counterevidence.
His remarks came as the Syrian Embassy in Kuwait categorically denied a report by Kuwaiti daily Al-Seyassah on Sunday over listing a number of Kuwaiti personalities on the terrorism financing list.
The embassy said in a statement that “it considers these allegations an attempt by some suspicious bodies which seem to be unhappy with the development of bilateral ties between the two brotherly countries”.
On the status of Kuwait’s embassy in Syria, Jarallah said, “operations will only resume with the Arab League’s consent.”
