Kuwait rejects Egyptian policemen’s assault on students in Alexandria

Kuwait: Kuwait on Sunday voiced dismay and rejection of an assault by Egyptian policemen on a number of Kuwaiti students in Egypt’s northern city of Alexandria on Saturday.

This came in a statement by the Kuwaiti Ministry of Foreign Affairs as Kuwaiti Deputy Foreign Minister Ambassador Mansour Al-Otaibi communicated with Egyptian Ambassador in Kuwait Osama Shaltout, calling on Egyptian authorities to take official and legal action in this regard.

The Kuwaiti official also called on Egyptian authorities to carry out investigations into the case, bring the perpetrators to accountability and take necessary measures to deter such unacceptable individual behaviors that do not reflect fraternal relations between Kuwait and Egypt.

The Kuwaiti official told the Egyptian ambassador that the Foreign Ministry, in collaboration with the Kuwaiti Embassy in Cairo, would follow up the required action to be taken by Egyptian authorities.

The Kuwaiti reaction came in response to Egyptian policemen’s assault on a group of Kuwaiti students following a quarrel between the students themselves at a shopping mall in Alexandria on Saturday. The students were arrested, but set free later in the day.
