Kuwait: Specialized workers from Saudi Arabia and Bahrain have reportedly been brought in to help operate oil and gas facilities in Kuwait during the strike.
According to Arabic newspaper Al-Qabas, the Kuwaiti Cabinet which convened yesterday was briefed about the contingency plan and hailed the positive cooperation with local and foreign companies to overcome the oil and gas workers’ strikers.
Meanwhile, trade unions showed some flexibility in their stances, announcing that the door is open for negotiation.
“The door is open for negotiations on ending the crisis. The problem is far from being personal. No one wants to damage the national economy,” they said.
The cabinet decided in its turn to set a committee chaired by Acting Deputy Premier, Oil and Finance Minister Anas Al-Saleh to manage the current crisis which is hitting the energy sector due to the strike.
