Kuwait is now al­low­ing its for­eign work­force to use a dig­i­tal-based iden­ti­fi­ca­tion sys­tem that grants en­try to the coun­try for hold­ers of valid res­i­dence visas, amid statewide plans to swap pa­per doc­u­ments for dig­i­tal files.

Non-Kuwaitis can ac­cess their iden­tity doc­u­ments through the Kuwait Mo­bile ID App, which aims to make it eas­ier for peo­ple to ac­cess pub­lic ser­vices, the Pub­lic Author­ity for Civil In­for­ma­tion (PACI) said in a state­ment.

Kuwaits for­eign and in­te­rior min­istries, in ad­di­tion to its civil avi­a­tion reg­u­la­tor, have all been ap­prised of the new guide­lines, ac­cord­ing to PACIs Di­rec­tor Gen­eral Msaad Al-Asousi.

The dig­i­tal iden­tity sys­tem links bio­met­ric data to a dig­i­tal code which al­lows ac­cess to iden­ti­fi­ca­tion and gov­ern­ment ser­vices any­where, be­sides help­ing users stream­line other trans­ac­tions. (KUNA)


Kuwait on Thurs­day said it would pro­vide $20 mil­lion in emer­gency aid to Ye­men, amid its “great con­cern” over the de­te­ri­o­rat­ing hu­man­i­tar­ian sit­u­a­tion in the wartorn na­tion.

Given the “ex­tremely alarm­ing” con­di­tions in Ye­men, Kuwait re­mains com­mit­ted to po­lit­i­cal di­a­logue as the only way out of the coun­try’s war of at­tri­tion, For­eign Minister and Act­ing De­fense Minister Sheikh Dr Ah­mad Nasser Al-Sabah told a min­is­te­rial-level con­fer­ence via video link.

Col­lec­tively hosted by the for­eign min­is­ters of Kuwait, the United King­dom, Ger­many and Swe­den, on the side­lines of the 75th an­nual UN Gen­eral Assem­bly, the talks aimed to push for po­lit­i­cal progress in Ye­men, amid on­go­ing fric­tion between the coun­try’s war­ring par­ties.

The Par­lia­ment will at­tempt to hold one or more spe­cial ses­sions if time per­mits, Al-Ghanim told re­porters, in­di­cat­ing that two grillings against His High­ness the Prime Minister Sheikh Sabah Khaled Al-Ha­mad Al-Sabah are planned on Tues­day.

WASH­ING­TON: US Sec­re­tary of State Mike Pom­peo and Bri­tish coun­ter­part Do­minic Raab af­firmed Wed­nes­day that their coun­tries are stand­ing against Iran’s get­ting of nu­clear weapons.

In a joint press con­fer­ence with Raab, Pom­peo said the US re­jects, in prin­ci­ple, al­low­ing Iran to get nu­clear weapons on Oct 19, the date of end­ing the sanc­tions on weapons that were im­posed by the UN.

He stressed that Iran is still the big­gest coun­try sup­port­ing ter­ror­ism in the world, and the US doesn’t be­lieve that Iran’s abil­ity to weapons war trade with­out pun­ish­ment is not an ‘ac­cept­able mat­ter’. (KUNA)
