Il­le­gal res­i­dent’s in­cen­tives stem from Kuwait’s hos­pitable na­ture: Of­fi­cial

Kuwait Times - - LOCAL - — KUNA

Kuwait of­fers ed­u­ca­tion and health­care freely to il­le­gal res­i­dents ac­cord­ing to its hu­man­i­tar­ian poli­cies, an of­fi­cial in a state body tasked with that com­mu­nity’s af­fairs said yes­ter­day. Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor of the Il­le­gal Res­i­dents Af­fairs’ Ap­pa­ra­tus, Saleh AlFadalah, made the com­ment as he briefed the Dutch Am­bas­sador to Kuwait Frans Po­tuyt at the body’s head­quar­ters in Nayef Palace. A Cab­i­net de­ci­sion, adopted in 2011, granted these in­cen­tives along with oth­ers to il­le­gal res­i­dents, he said.

Fadalah ex­plained that these ini­tia­tives stem from the Kuwaiti so­ci­ety’s hos­pitable na­ture, and the coun­try’s lead­ing po­si­tion in the field of global hu­man­i­tar­ian work. These ef­forts saw His High­ness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ah­mad AlJaber Al-Sabah hon­ored by the UN, as hu­man­i­tar­ian leader. How­ever, he stated that grant­ing ci­ti­zen­ship is a sovereign right of na­tions.
