We have a close relationship with Kuwait and regularly discuss a wide range of issues including the importance of rights for all religious groups in Kuwait. Kuwait has independent courts and an independent legal system. I visited Kuwait in May for our regular Ministerial Dialogue where I discussed a wide range of topics with the Foreign Minister and Deputy Foreign Minister, as well as meeting with civil society representatives.
