Kuwaiti MP warns against nuclear radiations in Gulf waters


Al-Saqer, chairman of the external relations committee and president of the Arab Interim Parliament (AIP), was speaking to KUNA after his arrival in the Qatari capital, Doha, the third leg of a Gulf tour that has already took him to the UAE and Bahrain.

He said the nuclear file was discussed during his talks with officials in Abu Dhabi and Manama due to the "dangerous escalation" vis-a-vis the Iranian nuclear program.

"We are discussing the nuclear file without reservation because of the common interest of the Gulf Cooperation Council’s (GCC) states which always seek security and peace to prevail in the region," said Al-Saqer.

"We wish no conflict occur in the Gulf and the US does not strike Iran, and that Iran behaves wisely in this issue," added the MP.

Iran, as a friendly nation for the GCC, should understand "our fears and that if Buchehr nuclear reactor suffers any malfunction, the consequences of nuclear leakages will be devastating," underlined Al-Saqer.

He, meanwhile, said the tour in the Gulf aimed at securing continuous cooperation and coordination between the parliaments of the six GCC states.
Al-Saqer said his talks with the Qatari officials would focus on ways of further boosting bilateral relations.

He said he would meet Shura Council speaker Mohammad Al-Khulaifi, Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Sheikh Hammad bin Jassem bin Jabr Al-Thani, and deputy prime minister and minister of energy and industry Abdullah Al-Attiyah.

"We are looking forward and encourage the participation of the public in the State of Qatar specially following the ratification of the permanent constitution," he said.
