KUWAIT: Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi believes that allegations about the Muslim Brotherhood directly supporting its political arm in Kuwait were offensive to Kuwaiti people and said the pan-Arab group was not engaged in any covert activity in any of the Gulf States.
Morsi was responding to a question by a local newspaper as part of an Arab media delegation which called upon the President on Monday. “Such assumptions are completely untrue and imply an insult to the people of Kuwait and the Gulf countries,” he said in response to Al-Rai’s inquiry about the supposed Muslim Brotherhood influence in Kuwait’s polity.
The Egyptian President further suggested that similar rumors were being spread on purpose to “create divisions between Arab nations.” “[Egypt] respects the people of the Arabian Gulf countries, and I reiterate the fact that maintaining the Gulf’s security is crucial for the region’s collective security,” Morsi said. He welcomed the delegation of Arab media personalities who participated in the Arab Media Leaders’ forum which concluded in Cairo on Sunday. — Al-Rai
