Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

The Par­lia­men­tary Co­or­di­na­tion and Ex­ter­nal Re­la­tions Com­mit­tee of the Shura, Rep­re­sen­ta­tives, Na­tional and Ummah Coun­cils of the Gulf Co­op­er­a­tion Coun­cil States dis­cussed the con­tro­ver­sial US Jus­tice Against Spon­sors of Ter­ror­ism Act (JASTA), and its im­pli­ca­tions on the in­ter­na­tional sit­u­a­tion.

The con­fer­ees have pro­posed a num­ber of rec­om­men­da­tions and re­ferred them to speak­ers of GCC leg­is­la­tures to ex­pose the dan­gers of the law and how to deal with the in­ter­na­tional sit­u­a­tion, Sec­re­tary Gen­eral of Kuwait’s Na­tional Assem­bly Al­lam Al-Kan­dari said fol­low­ing the meet­ing, held in Manama yes­ter­day.

Kan­dari added that the law “does not con­cern a cer­tain coun­try, but rather all coun­tries”, and the “Gulf states are con­cerned about the dan­gers of such a law.” He noted that the GCC leg­is­la­tures chiefs would thor­oughly de­lib­er­ate such rec­om­men­da­tions in their com­ing meet­ing, sched­uled Novem­ber 23-24. —KUNA
