Foreign Ministry Denies Refusing Kuwaiti Ambassador Accreditation
Lebanon’s Foreign Ministry denied in a statement on Thursday reports published in al-Akhbar daily claiming it rejected the accreditation of a new Kuwaiti ambassador.
“The ministry categorically rejects al-Akhbar’s reports published on Thursday, August 9 claiming the Lebanese ministry has rejected accreditation of a new ambassador of fraternal Kuwait,” said the statement.
It added: “The State of Kuwait has decided a while ago to extend the term of its current ambassador in Lebanon, Abdul-Al al-Qinai, which is a sovereign right to countries that the Lebanese state has never opposed.”
“Kuwaitis and Lebanese people have historic relations rooted in the Arab conscience and stronger than any attempt to undermine them,” it affirmed.
