Kuwait rejects any threat to Saudi security


Al-Sabah told KUNA reports in some Kuwaiti newspapers of the detention of Kuwaiti nationals by Saudi authorities were not accurate, adding that the arrested nationals were five, not 15.

Kuwaiti authorities are closely following up on the issue in coordination with the Saudi Interior Ministry, he emphasized.

On Wednesday, Spokesman of the Saudi Interior Ministry Mansour Al-Turki said Saudi authorities were interrogating five Kuwaitis and a Saudi national for distributing cassettes on highways.

The six people had a large sticker on their cars’ rear windows, calling anyone who wanted a cassette to stop and get one.

Kuwait’s First Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Interior and Defense Sheikh Jaber Al-Mubarak Al-Sabah had said on Tuesday that he charged the state security apparatus with following up on the case.

"We are all in the same boat and Kuwait rejects anything that may undermine the security of the Kingdom," he reiterated.

He urged Kuwaiti nationals to set an example in abiding by the regulations and laws of the neighboring Gulf states, affirming that the detainees were being well-treated.
