Kuwaiti Delegation Leaves for Burma
30 May 2013
A delegation of Kuwaiti parliamentarians left Kuwait on Wednesday for an official three-day visit to Burma, reports the state-run Kuwait News Agency. Although no details were provided about what would be discussed during the visit, the Kuwaiti government has been outspoken in its criticism of Burma’s treatment of Rohingya Muslims. The visit comes amid an outbreak of anti-Muslim violence in Shan State, the latest in a long series of similar incidents throughout Burma in recent months. The delegation will likely also discuss investment opportunities in Asia’s last major frontier market.
