Kuwait to con­tinue Iraq Kur­dis­tan’s aid

Kuwait Times - - FROM THE ARABIC PRESS -

Kuwait’s Con­sul Gen­eral in Ir­bil Dr Omar Al-Kan­dari yes­ter­day has reaf­firmed Kuwait’s keen­ness to con­tinue re­lief aid to Iraqi Kur­dis­tan to help the re­gion on the dis­placed Iraqis, and Syr­ian refugees. In a state­ment yes­ter­day af­ter a meet­ing with Ir­bil gov­er­nor Nawzad Hadi Mawlood, Al-Kan­dari re­it­er­ated Kuwait’s sup­port to the Iraqi peo­ple in the war against ter­ror, and what­ever threats to the coun­try’s se­cu­rity and sta­bil­ity. He noted that Kuwait’s aid is ex­tended to the dis­placed and refugees all over Iraq, point­ing to in­vest­ments by Kuwaiti com­pa­nies that aim to back Kur­dis­tan’s econ­omy. Over the past two years, Kuwait, through the Kuwait Red Cres­cent So­ci­ety (KRCS) and other hu­man­i­tar­ian or­ga­ni­za­tions, has been of­fer­ing aid to the dis­placed in Iraqi Kur­dis­tan, that have to­taled 130,000 food pack­ages. Kur­dis­tan is host­ing up to two mil­lion dis­placed Iraqis and Syr­ian refugees, a mat­ter that has ag­gra­vated the eco­nomic cri­sis in the re­gion that has been suf­fer­ing a bud­get deficit. — KUNA
