Ara­bian horses, one of the best breeds in the world due to their speed and

stamina. KUWAIT CITY, June 14: The Civil Ser­vice Com­mis­sion (CSC) has adopted a new mech­a­nism for the re­cruit­ment of ex­pa­tri­ate teach­ers as part of pro­ce­dures to de­velop the ed­u­ca­tional sys­tem, re­ports Al-Qabas daily.

Sources told the daily that the CSC has asked the Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion to set the con­di­tions for hir­ing ex­pa­tri­ate teach­ers, such as the min­i­mum aca­demic mark of the ap­pli­cants should be ‘very good’.

The CSC also stressed the need for the con­cerned au­thor­i­ties in Kuwait to ac­credit the aca­demic qual­i­fi­ca­tions of ap­pli­cants, adding that the ex­pe­ri­ence should match the aca­demic qual­i­fi­ca­tion ob­tained abroad and it should be au­then­ti­cated by the Min­istry of For­eign Af­fairs here.

The CSC clar­i­fied the above­men­tioned are the re­quire­ments for ex­pa­tri­ate teach­ers who will be hired for the first time, while Be­douns are ex­empted from th­ese con­di­tions.

Mean­while, As­sis­tant Un­der­sec­re­tary for Ad­min­is­tra­tion Af­fairs at Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion Fa­had Al-Ghais an­nounced that the For­eign Re­cruit­ment Com­mit­tee will leave for Pales­tine next month to hire Pales­tinian teach­ers for the com­ing aca­demic year, re­ports Al-Anba daily.

He said the min­istry is co­or­di­nat­ing with the Civil Ser­vice Com­mis­sion (CSC) over pro­ce­dures for ob­tain­ing the ap­proval of the com­mit­tee to travel to Pales­tine and hire around 50 Math­e­mat­ics teach­ers based on the re­quest of Pub­lic Ed­u­ca­tion Sec­tor.

Al-Ghais was ad­dress­ing jour­nal­ists on the side­lines of a cer­e­mony or­ga­nized by the Pales­tinian Em­bassy in honor of out­stand­ing high school stu­dents from the Pales­tinian com­mu­nity.

He ex­plained that the min­istry, fol­low­ing the suc­cess­ful ex­pe­ri­ence re­lated to the re­turn of Pales­tinian teach­ers to Kuwait last aca­demic year, has been keen on en­sur­ing the con­ti­nu­ity of their pres­ence af­ter they proved to be suc­cess­ful model in ed­u­ca­tion dur­ing the field fol­low-ups con­ducted.

KUWAIT CITY, June 14: The Am­bas­sador of the United Arab Emi­rates to Kuwait HE Rahma Hus­sein Al-Za’abi af­firmed that the lib­er­a­tion of the city of Hodeida from Houthi mili­tias and its re­turn to the Ye­meni le­git­i­macy will en­hance the chances of reach­ing a po­lit­i­cal so­lu­tion af­ter a three-year stale­mate.

In a press state­ment, he stressed the need for le­git­i­mate in­ter­ven­tion of the Arab coali­tion forces in the bat­tle of the port city of Hodeida es­pe­cially since it came at the re­quest of Ye­meni gov­ern­ment and de­pended on the res­o­lu­tions of the UN Se­cu­rity Coun­cil.

Am­bas­sador Al-Za’abi in­sisted that the in­ter­ven­tion by the Arab Coali­tion will pre­vent ex­ploita­tion of Hodeida Port for pro­long­ing the war by smug­gling Ira­nian weapons and col­lect­ing funds for the Houthis.

He said the Arab coali­tion is con­stantly in touch with the UN and re­lief agen­cies to en­sure con­tin­ued smooth trans­mis­sion of hu­man­i­tar­ian aid and the pro­tec­tion of civil­ians.

A high-level meet­ing was held by the com­mit­tee of mil­i­tary in­sti­tu­tions (Min­istry of De­fense, Min­istry of In­te­rior, Na­tional Guard and Kuwait Fire Ser­vice Di­rec­torate), re­ports Al-Anba daily quot­ing in­formed sources.

They ex­plained that a num­ber of is­sues were dis­cussed dur­ing the meet­ing such as in­creas­ing the salaries of em­ploy­ees of mil­i­tary bod­ies and min­istries.

The sug­ges­tion to in­crease the salaries was made be­cause a num­ber of of­fi­cers re­signed from their jobs in the mil­i­tary in or­der to work in the oil sec­tor or tech­ni­cal min­istries for higher salaries.

The sources said they are ex­pect­ing re­in­state­ment of ex­cep­tional ben­e­fits es­pe­cially pen­sion for re­tired of­fi­cers – KD 700 for a Ma­jor Gen­eral and KD 500 for Bri­gadier, adding that the ser­vice pe­riod for an of­fi­cer should be at least 27 years.
