Mikati’s office explains placement of Kuwaiti flag at the launch of a hospital donated by UAE


The Directorate of Protocols and Public Relations at the Premiership issued the following statement:

“In response to what is being circulated on social media regarding placing the flag of the State of Kuwait instead of the flag of the United Arab Emirates, the Directorate of Protocol and Public Relations at the Premiership would like to clarify that during the preparations for the opening of the Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Hospital Center, which was donated by the United Arab Emirates, for which we are grateful, the flags of the brotherly United Arab Emirates were displayed inside and outside the center and on the billboard as shown by the distributed images, but an error occurred due to employee confusion.”
