This question has been on the news all over the world: Why don’t Gulf States receive Syrian refugees, especially that they have the most belligerent tone in the Syrian conflict? Kuwaiti Journalist Fahd Al-Shulaimi explains why Gulf States don’t receive Syrian refugees.
“Kuwait and Gulf States are expensive and not fit for refugees. They [Gulf States] are fit for work,” Al-Shulaimi said. “Transportation is expensive and life in Kuwait is also expensive, whereas life in Lebanon or Turkey could be cheaper,” he added.
“Ultimately, you cannot receive people from a different environment and a different place, who have neurogliar or psychological problems and trauma, and attempt to integrate them in the society.”
