2 Kuwait rejects claims of not assisting citizens
The Kuwaiti Embassy in Khartoum has rejected social media claims that it is failing to assist Kuwaiti citizens wanting to return home from Sudan due to the political situation there.
It is reported that social media users have been sharing a voice recording allegedly belonging to a Kuwaiti citizen complaining that the embassy did not fulfill its duties in helping him and a group of other Kuwaitis in Sudan seeking to return home.
According to the Kuwaiti News Agency, the embassy confirmed its commitment to serve Kuwaiti citizens in Sudan.
“We have received a phone call from the mentioned Kuwaiti citizens who requested help, and the embassy has expressed its commitment to do so.
“We were surprised to receive a call from an official at the Saudi Arabian Embassy informing us that Kuwaiti citizens are present at the embassy … The embassy contacted the citizens to find out why they did not go directly to it.”
