Kuwait-Iraq, Politics, 2/16/2002
The Kuwaiti minister of defense Sheikh Jaber al-Mubarak has denied the reports stated by the British daily The Guardian on the readiness of 200,000 American troops to launch an attack from Kuwait at Iraq.
In a statement to the Kuwaiti daily al-Rai la-Am issued on Friday, Sheikh al-Mubarak said that every body knows that the Americans do not fight by their land forces, nor troops, rather they use their air force.
He added that what was published on that 200,000 soldiers will start from Kuwait are information disseminated "by the Iraqi intelligence in order to create confusion and to constitute a sort of pressure on Kuwait."
On the existence of agents for the American intelligence training Shiite forces in Kuwait, al-Mubarak said:" we do not have clients and Kuwait does not interfere in the internal affairs of any country and does not want any one to interfere in its affairs."
