Meanwhile, local media reports quoting Foreign Office (FO) Spokesman Zahid Chaudhri about Kuwait visa curbs for Pakistanis stated that the issue would be resolved soon.
It may be mentioned here that President Dr Arif Alvi had invited Kuwait to benefit from the emerging economic opportunities under the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) by investing in various projects in a meeting held with Dr Sabah last week.
Both sides had discussed the existing level of cooperation and agreed to expand bilateral ties for the mutual benefits of the two countries.
Alvi also said Pakistan could provide training to Kuwaiti military personnel.
