Kuwaitis urged to leave Thailand

The Foreign Ministry of Kuwait has urged all Kuwaiti nationals in Thailand to leave the country before next Monday - the day Bangkok is set to be shut down by anti-government protesters led by former Democrat Party power-broker Suthep Thaugsuban.

According to the Kuwait News Agency, Kuwait's Ambassador to Thailand Abdullah Al-Sharhan called on Kuwaiti citizens in Thailand to leave the country immediately, calling on Kuwaitis to call off planned trips to the kingdom due to "the political unrest and the unstable security situation".

The ambassador asked Kuwaitis in Thailand to provide the embassy with their personal information by calling staff on +66918909998 or +6626366600.

The anti-government People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) hopes to topple the caretaker government of Yingluck Shinawatra before the next general election, currently due to take place on Feb 2.
