KUWAIT: Secretary General of the Progressive Movement Ahmad Al-Dayeen said the issue of Kuwait's bedoons needs a humanitarian and just solution, adding the issue "was not solved by time or by racists, as it requires political will". Dayeen was speaking during a seminar titled "Between the issue of citizenry and Kuwait's bedoon" organized by the movement. He spoke about the principle of citizenry and its development in societies and Kuwait, and stressed the necessity of political will, besides a realistic study of the bedoon issue, "because they are people who are part of the country and society". Dayeen said it is "not possible for racists to be a tool to resolve a humanitarian issue", and there should be a serious will for a humanitarian solution that ends the suffering and merges Kuwait's bedoons with the citizenry, adding there is no alternative to this regardless of time.
