Saudi Arabia and Kuwait to demarcate their disputed border

Thursday, July 22, 2010    

ABU DHABI — Two leading Gulf Arab states have agreed to demarcate their disputed border. Kuwait and Saudi Arabia have agreed to a project that would demarcate their 250-kilometer border. The two countries have selected and signed a contract with a New Zealand firm to conduct the border delineation. "The contract was signed and maps will be drawn in accordance with extremely high standards," Kuwaiti Interior Deputy Undersecretary Maj. Gen. Abdullah Al Muhana said.

Al Muhana said New Zealand's NZ Aerial Mapping was awarded the contract to delineate the Saudi-Kuwaiti border. The general, who said several companies competed for the project, did not specify the value of the contract.

"The company will soon begin operations," Al Muhana, responsible for border security, said.

On July 20, the two Gulf Cooperation Council states concluded border talks in the Saudi port of Jedda, Middle East Newsline reported. The Saudi delegation was led by Maj. Gen. Zamim Al Sawat, director-general of the Saudi Border Guard.

Officials said both GCC states have formed technical teams to monitor the border demarcation. They said Kuwait and Saudi Arabia have enhanced military and security cooperation and were planning naval and other exercises over the next year.

Ali al Habsi is not cheap

07:45 PM 07 October, 2010

Wigan Athletic Football Club have been told Ali Al-Habsi won’t come cheap.

The Oman international is on loan at the DW Stadium for the season, but Roberto Martinez is said to be keen on making the deal permanent.

However, Bolton Wanderers boss Owen Coyle has told his Lancashire rival that the 28-year-old goalkeeper will not be made available on the cheap.

"The only way they can keep him for good is by paying our club a large transfer fee, if indeed that's acceptable to us," said the Trotters manager.

"Wigan can make as much noise as they want. Ultimately I will decided whether Ali Al-Habsi is a Bolton Wanderers goalkeeper or not."
