Kuwaitize Saud Port and Saudize Al Khafji Port

Read this article. Its in Arabic, though it is talking about some mutual trades in lands between Kuwait and Saudi when those lands belong to Kuwaiti!!!!!

It goes...

The possibility of Saudi Arabia giving “the Port of King Saud” to the Kuwaitis for that the geographical distance of the port is within Kuwaiti borders (considering the sovereign depth that Kuwait falls within), while Kuwait will give “Al-Khafji” port to the Saudis, which is an oil rich port! The discussions will raise to borderline that litigant area.

The “Port of King Saud” is notorious for raising question marks between the two countries (Kuwait and Saudi) especially that it was taking this classical move since 30+ years.

After liberating Garooh Island of Kuwait in 1991, the Saudi Arabian Navy raised their Saudi flag on the island (the first Kuwaiti land to be liberated), and this issue went into some political and disputable issues and that file was shut quietly to keep a good relation between the two countries.

The question is.. How much longer do we have to keep quiet and shut such issues quietly before our flag is replaced???

I've heard that the reason behind Sultan bin Abdul Aziz's visit is to make the whole process of trading lands a whole lot easier and acceptable for Kuwaitis. It's not just a "friendly" visit. Unfortunately, our "guys" who are in "charge" of things in this country are still in a deep sleep...
