KUWAIT CITY, July 6 (Xinhua) -- The Kuwait's Prime Minister Sheikh Jaber Al-Mubarak Al-Hamad Al-Sabah welcomed the International Olympic Committee (IOC)'s decision to lift the suspension of Kuwaiti sport activities.
This move will clear the way for Kuwaiti athletes to partake in and raise national flag in Olympic games, he said on Friday in a statement.
The Kuwait's government will provide all support to Kuwaiti youth and employ all potential to improve national sports, the statement said.
The Kuwait Olympic Committee (KOC) was suspended by the IOC on October 27, 2015, to protect the Olympic Movement in Kuwait from undue government interference, after a sports law that was not compatible with the basic principles governing the Olympic Movement was passed in the country.
The IOC has fully lifted the suspension of the KOC as a result of the successful implementation of a roadmap agreed between all parties, the IOC said on July 5, 2019.
