KUWAIT CITY —
Kuwait’s Emir Sheikh Nawaf Al-Ahmed Al-Sabah issued a decree on Tuesday approving a new Cabinet led by Prime Minister Sheikh Sabah Khaled Al-Hamad Al-Sabah.

Oil Minister Mohammad Abdulatif Al-Fares, Finance Minister Khalifa Hamade and Foreign Minister Sheikh Ahmad Nasser Al-Sabah were reappointed in the new Cabinet, according to the Kuwait News Agency.

The Kuwaiti prime minister along with his Cabinet resigned in January following a standoff with parliament and the government ever since had been acting in a caretaker capacity.

Following the approval of the new Cabinet, which include Hamad Jaber Al-Ali Al-Sabah as deputy prime minister and minister of defense, Issa Ahmad Mohammad Hassan Al-Kandari as minister of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs and Bassel Humoud Al-Sabah as minister of health, the prime minister expressed his gratitude toward the Emir for reposing confidence in him and tasking him with heading the council of ministers and working out the Cabinet new line-up.

The Kuwaiti premier said he deeply appreciated the task accorded to him, amid "this phase marked with challenges, risks and rapid events that require serious and fruitful action to make more accomplishments in various realms for sake of attaining the Kuwaiti people aspirations."
