The current situation in the region due to rising tensions between the US and Iran, is “perilous”, head of the Kuwaiti parliament Marzouq Al Ghanem said on Thursday following a crisis meeting with government officials.



He added that the government confirmed readiness to handle emergencies “in case of the eruption of a war” in the region.

Ministers of foreign affairs, trade, electricity and information explained their contingency plans at the meeting held behind closed doors.

“According to the detailed explanation given by the ministers, it has become clear how delicate, sensitive and dangerous the stage ahead and the necessity of taking all measures for all possibilities,” Al Ghanem said, according to Kuwait’s state news agency KUNA.

“At the foreign front, the situation is not assuring,” he added.



In recent days, tensions have mounted in the Gulf after four vessels were sabotaged off the eastern coast of the United Arab Emirates and Iran-allied Houthi militants in Yemen claimed responsibility for a drone attack on vital oil installations in Saudi Arabia.
