There has been no request from either Saudi Arabia or from Kuwait to close the entry and exit borders points between their countries, reports Alrai daily quoting reliable sources thus denying earlier news.

The sources pointed transit between the country via the respective border points ‘operates normal’ and there is no change in the movement of vehicles or people.

The daily quoting sources on the National and Liberation days holidays there was heavy movement of traffic from either side.

However, the sources said the Abdali border crossing between Kuwait and Iraq has been temporarily closed until further notice, because of the outbreak of coronavirus, saying no one is permitted either to enter or leave through this border point.

In a related context, the sources confirmed there is a kind of easing by the customs authorities for the trucks bringing in the foodstuff such as meat and vegetables, saying “the current procedures include inspecting them at the port and allowing them to proceed immediately, without the security convoy accompanying them to the Sulaibiya customs depot to ensure foodstuff has quick access to markets and cooperative societies.”

Meanwhile, the Al-Anba daily also denied the Salmi and Nuwaiseeb border points between Kuwait and Saudi Arabia had been closed and called on social media users not to promote rumors at this stage when the country is making all efforts to fight the coronavirus.
