Strike Revilla: Resolving PH-Kuwait row like going thru eye of the needle

May 23, 2018 @ 15:56

Cavite 2nd District Representative Strike Revilla, in his Abante column, said the Philippine government went through the eye of the needle before it was able to resolve its diplomatic row with Kuwait.

The Cavite politiko said the government had to send Special Envoy Abdullah Mama-o to Kuwait to defuse the situation.

“Buti na lamang at hindi na lumala ang sitwasyon. Sa pagpapadala­ natin ng special envoy, si Abdullah Mama-o, naliwanagan ang mga kaganapan at nagdulot sa pagpapalaya ng ating mga diplomat at pagkakasundo para proteksiyunan ang karapatan at kalagayan ng ating mga OFW sa Kuwait,” Revilla said.

“Daig pa ang lumusot sa butas ng karayom bago nagkaprogreso sa relasyon ng Pilipinas at Kuwait,” he added.

Revilla also cited the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signed by both countries to protect overseas Filipino workers as a step in the right direction.

“Tinitiyak ng MOU na bibigyan ng mga employer ng sapat na pagkain, maayos na tirahan at pananamit, maayos at makataong kalaga­yan ng pagtatrabaho, at pagpapatala sa health insurance system ng Kuwait ang kanilang mga empleyado – kasama na ang pagpapagamot; at pagpapauwi ng mga labi kung sakaling bawian ito ng buhay. Ipinagbabawal na ang pagkait ng mga ‘identity document’ tulad ng passport na ngayon ay dapat lagi nang hawak ng OFW,” he explained.
