Ambassador of Kuwait, Nawaf Abdulaziz Al-Enezi, called on Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf at the Prime Minister’s House on Friday and informed him that the Kingdom of Kuwait is considering to lift restrictions on issuance of visas to Pakistani workers.
Kuwait had imposed a total ban on all types of visas for Pakistanis in Kuwait in May 2011 and the ban included suspending all tourism, visit and trade visas as well as visas sponsored by spouses. Such curbs were also slapped on nationals from Syria, Iraq, Iran and Afghanistan.
The ban was attributed to the “difficult security conditions in the five countries” and to “the remarkably increasing tendency of nationals from the five countries to apply for visas to bring in relatives who faced or could face arrest by local authorities,” said the Kuwaiti media reports.
Mr. Nawaf Abdulaziz Al-Enezi also informed the Prime Minister that a high powered delegation would be visiting Pakistan soon to recruit doctors, paramedics and workers, a PM office statement said.
Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf, during his visit to Kuwait on the sidelines of Asian Cooperation Dialogue (ACD) Summit, had taken up the issue of visas with His Highness Sheikh Sabah Al Ahmad Al Jaber Al Sabah, who had assured him of looking into the matter.
Former Prime Minister, Yusuf Raza Gilani, had also raised the issue during his visit to Kuwait.
While talking to Ambassador of Kuwait, Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf said that Pakistan and Kuwait enjoy close relations which are growing from strength to strength.
The Prime Minister praised the wisdom and sagacity of the Ameer of Kuwait and asked the Ambassador to convey his greetings and best wishes to him.
“The smart phone is a devil that entered my house and ruined my life,” says a husband who was living a happy life for 15 years. Once his wife acquired a smart phone, she became a different woman, the husband explains adding that she started spending most of her time on What’s app and other chatting programs which later demonstrated her infidelity. This story is not an isolated case of a marriage-end. Technological development, modern ways of communication among people and the advent of the social media have played a role in the increased rate of divorce in Kuwait.
Which country will be the best for a baby born in 2013?
To answer this, the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), a sister company of The Economist, has this time turned deadly serious. It earnestly attempts to measure which country will provide the best opportunities for a healthy, safe and prosperous life in the years ahead.
Its quality-of-life index links the results of subjective life-satisfaction surveys—how happy people say they are—to objective determinants of the quality of life across countries. Being rich helps more than anything else, but it is not all that counts; things like crime, trust in public institutions and the health of family life matter too. In all, the index takes 11 statistically significant indicators into account. They are a mixed bunch: some are fixed factors, such as geography; others change only very slowly over time (demography, many social and cultural characteristics); and some factors depend on policies and the state of the world economy.
