Statement of Sen. Nancy Binay on the diplomatic row between the Philippines and Kuwait

It is a sad thing that the incident in Kuwait left a clog in our effort to come up with an MOU with the Kuwaiti government to protect our overseas contract workers.

At the moment, let's not exacerbate the issue so as not put into jeopardy our kababayans in Kuwait.

The DFA and DOLE must place necessary measures to avoid a repeat of such incidents, and at the same time find ways to restore our relationship with Kuwait for the sake of the more than 250,000 OFWs in Kuwait.
