Kuwait not to allow Israeli crafts to use its airspace: speaker
Kuwaiti parliament speaker Jassem Al-Kharafi said on Sunday that Kuwait will not allow Israeli crafts and jets to use its airspace, Kuwaiti News Agency ( KUNA) reported.
Answering a question about news published by Israeli press over probable deals by which some Arab countries will allow Israeli crafts to use their airspaces, Al-Kharafi said Kuwait had never and will never allow this, affirming that his country will never join agreements on this issue, Xinhua reported.
Addressing media, Al-Kharafi expressed astonishment over accepting Israeli media reports as a matter of fact and exclaimed "did the Israeli press became a source from which we extract news? "
Israeli media reports are not true, he said, calling on journalists and media men not to rely on or publish any "illogic information."
Earlier news stated that some Arab countries might make deals with Israel allowing the Jewish state of using the airspace of these countries as a part of incentives package for Israel to settle the Palestinian issue.
Some other reports mentioned that Saudi Arabia might open its airspace before Israeli military jets in case of a probable Israeli air attack on Iranian nuclear facilities, a report that Israel itself denied.
