Kuwait North Korea

Kuwait aiding N.Korea, says it will gladly take in (slave labor) workers who funnel money back to state…….


Trump should be sending serious words to the Gulf states to back down, no aiding and abetting this regime.

The same for Cuba.

Kuwait tells AP: North Korean workers welcome amid crisis

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Stalwart U.S. ally Kuwait will continue to grant visas to North Korean laborers whose wages allegedly aid Pyongyang in evading international sanctions, its government told The Associated Press on Thursday before its ruler travels to Washington to meet President Donald Trump.

 

In a statement responding to an AP story , Kuwait also said it never stopped issuing work visas for North Koreans, refuting a major State Department human trafficking report released in June that applauded the Mideast nation for taking steps to limit their presence.

 

Kuwait’s response shows the challenge the U.S. faces in trying to convince Gulf nations to cut back on using thousands of North Korean workers on major construction projects and to close government-run restaurants in the region. Experts and analysts say the money earned from those enterprises helps Pyongyang buy luxury goods and build the missiles it now uses to threaten the U.S. territory of Guam, as well as other parts of the U.S. and America’s Asian allies.

 

Kuwait currently hosts 6,064 North Korean laborers, the country’s Public Authority of Manpower said in a statement sent to the AP by the Information Ministry.
