His Highness the Amir of the State of Kuwait Sheikh Sabah Al Ahmad Al Jaber Al Sabah has invited Indian Prime Minister Sri Narendra Modi to Kuwait. The invitation has been delivered to PM Modi in Delhi, informed Indian Ambassador to Kuwait Sunil Jain.

However the date for Modi's visit to Kuwait is not yet decided and it will be finalized by mutual convenience of both the countries, ambassador said. Two weeks back India's National Security Advisor Sri Ajit Doval, who is possibly India's second most important man after Prime Minister Narendra Modi, had visited Kuwait and held high level meeting with HH The Amir of Kuwait and other high level officials.

Modi's visit to Kuwait was a long time demand by the Indian community in Kuwait after he took charge as the Prime Minister of India. This will be first visit by any Indian Prime Minister after 35 years. The Last visit of an Indian Prime Minister to Kuwait was in 1981 when the then Prime Minister Smt. Indira Gandhi visited Kuwait. The Prime Minister of Kuwait Sheikh Jaber Al-Mubarak Al-Hamad Al-Sabah had visited India in November 2013.

According to Forbes' Narendra Modi is India's populist prime minister and remains hugely popular in India. Modi has raised his profile as a global leader in recent years during official visits with Barack Obama and Xi Jinping. He has also emerged as a key figure in the international effort to tackle climate change, as planetary warming will deeply affect millions of his country's rural and most vulnerable citizens.

MP reiterates charging expatriates for using roads!

Manama: A Kuwaiti lawmaker who has called for the taxation of foreigners has said her stance was outcome of her patriotism for the country and not because of xenophobia. Safa Al Hashem, Kuwait’s only female lawmaker, has called for taking strict measures to to address the demographic imbalance in the country. Downplaying her recent comments regarding foreigners, she told the Kuwaiti daily Al Qabas on Thursday that she had “full respect” for expatriates in Kuwait.

“But, I had to sound the alarm regarding the demographic imbalance when citizens are outnumbered by foreigners by two to one,” Al Hashem said. “Regardless of how much a country is wealthy, the overuse of its services inevitably drains its resources and undermines its society. There are many unskilled and untrained foreigners doing odd jobs in Kuwait,” Al Hashem said.

“I do not see why they [expatriates] get upset. I do understand that anything that comes free is received with great pleasure. However, there are realities on the ground. I did not call for preventing expatriates from visiting Kuwaiti hospitals and getting medicines. I simply said they should pay for it. In Egypt, I was once told to leave a hospital because it was exclusively for Egyptians. I did not mind and left,” she added.

Defending her proposal to impose road taxes on foreigners. Al Hashem said she wanted to help solve the problem of traffic congestion.

“We have a traffic situation that requires prompt solutions, and we have cases of foreigners owning up to six cars,” she said. She also proposed that expatriates be allowed to get a driving licence after a minimum stay of two years in the country. Al Hashem said she was also shocked when a minister recently proposed to recruit plumbers from Egypt. She dismissed claims that Kuwaitis would never do such menial jobs. Foreigners make 70 per cent of Kuwait’s total population of 4.4 million. Al Hashem’s repeated calls to impose taxes on foreigners have sparked a heated debate in the country on ways to deal with the demographic imbalance.

Tourists are warned to leave Sharm el-Sheikh and other Egyptian Red Sea resorts IMMEDIATELY over fears of an imminent ISIS attack

Israel has warned citizens to immediately leave Egypt's Red Sea resorts and cancel all future travel plans over fears of an ISIS attack. 

The country's counter-terrorism bureau said there is a 'serious and current threat' of a terror attack targeting the region, and in particular Israeli tourists. The Red Sea region includes the tourist destinations of Sharm el-Sheikh, Hurghada, Marsa Alam and Luxor, which are popular with British holidaymakers.

Eitan Ben-David, the head of Israel's counter-terror bureau, told The Telegraph: 'We don't want to cry wolf, wolf. We really believe that the threat is serious.' There are thought to be hundreds of Israelis currently in the region, known as south Sinai, though thousands more are likely to travel there during next month's Passover festival. The region used to be popular with British holidaymakers seeking winter sun, and though numbers have dropped in recent years, thousands still visit each year.

Foreign Office advice warns against all travel to North Sinai due to an ongoing military offensive there, and all but essential travel to South Sinai. The exception to this is within the Sharm el-Sheikh perimeter barrier, though officials warn British tourists not to fly into the area. It is almost two years since 38 people, most of them British holidaymakers, were killed during an ISIS attack on Sousse, in Tunisia.

Gunman Seifeddine Rezgui arrived by van to the resort town of Port El Kantaoui carrying an AK47 rifle hidden inside a parasol before opening fire. He then rampaged through the city streets and a hotel complex for the next hour and a half, shooting and throwing grenades as he went, before being killed by police.

At an inquest into the deaths of 30 Britons in the tragedy, Mr Justice Loraine-Smith blasted the Tunisian police response as 'cowardly' and 'shambolic'.
