Kuwait: Counter-terror deal with US
The United States is to provide counter-terrorism training and materials on a grant basis, as one of a series of agreements finalised during the Third US-Kuwait Strategic Dialogue, which took place in Kuwait on 20 March. The two governments also signed off on plans to improve co-operation to identify high-risk travellers that pose a security risk. It was only in January that the US lifted a three-year block on Kuwait Airways operating direct flights to New York.
