RAMALLAH: The municipality at the Palestinian town of Silvit yesterday hoisted the Kuwaiti flag side by side with the Palestinian flag on a street named after Speaker of the Kuwaiti National Assembly Marzouq Ali Al-Ghanem. The gesture is an expression of gratitude for Kuwait's support for the Palestinian just cause. Abdulkarim Al-Zubaidi, head of the municipality, said in a statement to the press that the Kuwaiti flag was raised aloft in appreciation for the Kuwaiti supportive stance, namely the stand by the Kuwaiti parliament expressing opposition to participation in the Manam workshop for the Palestinian question. Ghanem, on Monday, urged the Kuwaiti Government to take "a decisive and an irreversible stand to boycott" the forum in the Bahraini capital. - KUNA
