(MENAFN - Arab Times) Assistant Undersecretary for Citizenship and Passports Affairs Major- General Sheikh Faisal Al- Nawaf was recently quoted as saying Kuwait pays concern to all expatriates, reports Al- Seyassah daily.



During his meeting with the delegation of United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHRC) he emphasized that the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Interior Sheikh Mohammed Al- Khalid looks at the humanitarian side of the Syrian people and adding the minister has put in place exceptional procedures to provide them the best services.



He said the Undersecretary of the Ministry Lieutenant-General Suleiman Fahad Al-Fahd had given him clear instructions to pay concern for expatriates in general and Syrians in particular. For her part, Dr Hanan Hamdan, Director of UNHRC, extended on behalf of the delegation her gratitude and appreciation to HH the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al Ahmed Al-Jaber Al-Sabah and HH the Crown Prince Sheikh Nawaf Al-Ahmad for their pioneering role in serving the humanity. She also praised Kuwait's humanitarian role in providing aid and services to refuges and expatriates.



Meanwhile, the Ministry of Interior (MoI) underlined recently the importance of cooperation with the General Administration of Customs (GAC) to assume their joint responsibility for taking the highest level of safety and security measures and to avoid a strike by customs inspectors at the Kuwait International Airport. In a press statement, the Ministry said taking the utmost safety and security measures is considered the first defense line to protect the country and control and prevent the entry of any banned materials or items through this vital facility or through other important land and sea inlets.



Mindful of these goals, the Ministry stressed that the Interior Ministry's General Administration of Airport Security in coordination with the GAC must make sure that customs workers, who enter the freight customs areas, must be from the categories stated in relative residency laws to help maintain the security and safety of this important facility and to avoid the entrance of any violators
