Deputy Foreign Minister Khaled Al-Jarallah on Friday regretted remarks made by the Filipino president regarding his nation' community in Kuwait.

Affirming that the two countries have maintained distinguished ties, Al-Jarallah indicated that his department had immediately contacted the Philippines' authorities to determine motives behind the president's statement and refute the erroneous information in it.

Number of the Filipinos in Kuwait has exceeded 170,000, thus the four cases mentioned in the president statement "cannot be used as a criterion to assess the overall status of the Philippines' laborers in the country," he said. Legal measures had been taken against the four Filipinos, Al-Jarallah added.

Kuwait enjoys "a bright image on treating the expatriate workers and has laws that preserve their rights and organize their relations with the employers," the deputy foreign minister said. Kuwait's laws and regulations protect the expatriates against any attacks or abuse and this fact has turned it into a favored mecca for work for various peoples.
